Below program illustrates the working of setDefault() Method of TimeZone.
Example 1:




// Java code to illustrate setDefault() method
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class TimeZoneDemo {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Creating an object of TimeZone class.
        TimeZone time_zone_default
            = TimeZone.getTimeZone("Europe/Rome");
  
        time_zone_default.setDefault(time_zone_default);
  
        // Displaying the default TimeZone
        System.out.println("Default TimeZone: "
                           + time_zone_default);
    }
}
Output:

Default TimeZone: sun.util.calendar.ZoneInfo[id="Europe/Rome", offset=3600000,
dstSavings=3600000, useDaylight=true, transitions=169, lastRule=java.util.SimpleTimeZone
[id=Europe/Rome, offset=3600000, dstSavings=3600000, useDaylight=true, startYear=0,
startMode=2, startMonth=2, startDay=-1, startDayOfWeek=1, startTime=3600000, startTimeMode=2,
endMode=2, endMonth=9, endDay=-1, endDayOfWeek=1, endTime=3600000, endTimeMode=2]]

Example 2:




// Java code to illustrate setDefault() method
  
import java.util.*;
  
public class TimeZoneDemo {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Creating an object of TimeZone class.
        TimeZone time_zone_default
            = TimeZone.getTimeZone("Pacific/Pago_Pago");
  
        time_zone_default.setDefault(time_zone_default);
  
        // Displaying the default TimeZone
        System.out.println("Default TimeZone: "
                           + time_zone_default);
    }
}
Output:

Default TimeZone: sun.util.calendar.ZoneInfo[id="Pacific/Pago_Pago",
offset=-39600000, dstSavings=0, useDaylight=false, transitions=3, lastRule=null]
