public class SimpleTimeZone
extends TimeZone
SimpleTimeZone is a concrete subclass of TimeZone that represents a time zone for use with a Gregorian calendar. This class does not handle historical changes.

Use a negative value for dayOfWeekInMonth to indicate that SimpleTimeZone should count from the end of the month backwards. For example, Daylight Savings Time ends at the last (dayOfWeekInMonth = -1) Sunday in October, at 2 AM in standard time.

Constructors

 o SimpleTimeZone
 public SimpleTimeZone(int rawOffset,
                       String ID)
Constructs a SimpleTimeZone with the given base time zone offset from GMT and time zone ID. Timezone IDs can be obtained from TimeZone.getAvailableIDs. Normally you should use TimeZone.getDefault to construct a TimeZone.

Parameters:
rawOffset - The given base time zone offset to GMT.
ID - The time zone ID which is obtained from TimeZone.getAvailableIDs.
 o SimpleTimeZone
 public SimpleTimeZone(int rawOffset,
                       String ID,
                       int startMonth,
                       int startDay,
                       int startDayOfWeek,
                       int startTime,
                       int endMonth,
                       int endDay,
                       int endDayOfWeek,
                       int endTime)
Construct a SimpleTimeZone with the given base time zone offset from GMT, time zone ID, time to start and end the daylight time. Timezone IDs can be obtained from TimeZone.getAvailableIDs. Normally you should use TimeZone.getDefault to create a TimeZone. For a time zone that does not use daylight saving time, do not use this constructor; instead you should use SimpleTimeZone(rawOffset, ID). By default, this constructor specifies day-of-week-in-month rules. That is, if the startDay is 1, and the startDayOfWeek is SUNDAY, then this indicates the first Sunday in the startMonth. A startDay of -1 likewise indicates the last Sunday. However, by using negative or zero values for certain parameters, other types of rules can be specified. Day of month. To specify an exact day of the month, such as March 1, set startDayOfWeek to zero. Day of week after day of month. To specify the first day of the week occurring on or after an exact day of the month, make the day of the week negative. For example, if startDay is 5 and startDayOfWeek is -MONDAY, this indicates the first Monday on or after the 5th day of the startMonth. Day of week before day of month. To specify the last day of the week occurring on or before an exact day of the month, make the day of the week and the day of the month negative. For example, if startDay is -21 and startDayOfWeek is -WEDNESDAY, this indicates the last Wednesday on or before the 21st of the startMonth. The above examples refer to the startMonth, startDay, and startDayOfWeek; the same applies for the endMonth, endDay, and endDayOfWeek.

Parameters:
rawOffset - The given base time zone offset to GMT.
ID - The time zone ID which is obtained from TimeZone.getAvailableIDs.
startMonth - The daylight savings starting month. Month is 0-based. eg, 0 for January.
startDay - The daylight savings starting day-of-week-in-month. Please see the member description for an example.
startDayOfWeek - The daylight savings starting day-of-week. Please see the member description for an example.
startTime - The daylight savings starting time. Please see the member description for an example.
endMonth - The daylight savings ending month. Month is 0-based. eg, 0 for January.
endDay - The daylight savings ending day-of-week-in-month. Please see the member description for an example.
endDayOfWeek - The daylight savings ending day-of-week. Please see the member description for an example.
endTime - The daylight savings ending time. Please see the member description for an example.

Methods

 o setStartYear
 public void setStartYear(int year)
Sets the daylight savings starting year.

Parameters:
year - The daylight savings starting year.
 o setStartRule
 public void setStartRule(int month,
                          int dayOfWeekInMonth,
                          int dayOfWeek,
                          int time)
Sets the daylight savings starting rule. For example, Daylight Savings Time starts at the first Sunday in April, at 2 AM in standard time. Therefore, you can set the start rule by calling: setStartRule(TimeFields.APRIL, 1, TimeFields.SUNDAY, 2*60*60*1000);

Parameters:
month - The daylight savings starting month. Month is 0-based. eg, 0 for January.
dayOfWeekInMonth - The daylight savings starting day-of-week-in-month. Please see the member description for an example.
dayOfWeek - The daylight savings starting day-of-week. Please see the member description for an example.
time - The daylight savings starting time. Please see the member description for an example.
 o setEndRule
 public void setEndRule(int month,
                        int dayOfWeekInMonth,
                        int dayOfWeek,
                        int time)
Sets the daylight savings ending rule. For example, Daylight Savings Time ends at the last (-1) Sunday in October, at 2 AM in standard time. Therefore, you can set the end rule by calling: setEndRule(TimeFields.OCTOBER, -1, TimeFields.SUNDAY, 2*60*60*1000);

Parameters:
month - The daylight savings ending month. Month is 0-based. eg, 0 for January.
