Parameters: The method does not take any parameters.

Return Value: The method returns in milliseconds the amount of time needed to be added to the UTC to get the standard time in this TimeZone.

Below programs illustrate the working of getRawOffset() Method of TimeZone:
Example 1:




// Java code to illustrate getRawOffset() method
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class TimeZoneDemo {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
  
        // Creating a TimeZone
        TimeZone offtime_zone
            = TimeZone.getTimeZone("Pacific/Pago_Pago");
  
        // Knowing the rawOffset time
        System.out.println("The rawOffset time is: "
                           + offtime_zone.getRawOffset());
    }
}

Output:

The rawOffset time is: -39600000

Example 2:




// Java code to illustrate getRawOffset() method
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class TimeZoneDemo {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
  
        // Creating a TimeZone
        TimeZone offtime_zone
            = TimeZone.getTimeZone("Europe/Rome");
  
        // Knowing the rawOffset time
        System.out.println("The rawOffset time is: "
                           + offtime_zone.getRawOffset());
    }
}

Output:

The rawOffset time is: 3600000
