        // Printing RawOffset value
        System.out.println("Initially RawOffset is = "
                           + obj.getRawOffset());
  
        // Setting RawOffset on object obj
        obj.setRawOffset(6000000);
        System.out.println("RawOffset "
                           + "set to 6000000");
  
        // Printing RawOffset value
        System.out.println("Current RawOffset is = "
                           + obj.getRawOffset());
    }
}
