    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Creating a TimeZone
        TimeZone offtime_zone
            = TimeZone.getTimeZone("Europe/Rome");
  
        // Creating date object
        Date dt = new Date();
  
        // Verifying daylight
        boolean bool_daylight
            = offtime_zone.inDaylightTime(dt);
  
        // Checking the value of day light
        System.out.println("Is it in day"
                           + " light saving time? "
                           + bool_daylight);
    }
}
Output:
Is it in day light saving time? true

        // Verifying daylight
        boolean bool_daylight
            = offtime_zone.inDaylightTime(dt);
