    As Jon Skeet correctly stated, a java.util.Date object has no time zone. But confusingly, the methods toString and getHours apply the default time zone to their output. So, naïve programmers are easily fooled as it seems a Date has a time zone but in fact does not. † Actually, java.util.Date does have a time zone, buried deep under layers of source code. For most practical purposes, that time zone is ignored. So, as shorthand, we say java.util.Date has no time zone. Furthermore, that buried time zone is not the one used by Date’s toString method; that method uses the JVM’s current default time zone. All the more reason to avoid this confusing class and stick with Joda-Time and java.time. Or running a program that shows it to me, i figured i’ll open a web page that shows it. The funniest result i saw was telling me the local time in Millis, Massachusetts. I couldn’t believe there isn’t a site that does such a simple thing. My ISP’s page popped up telling me there is no such page. I then checked with my hosting provider and it turned out this incredibly simple domain was available. So i bought it and turned it into a single-serving website which shows, you guessed it, the current time in ms. UTC vs. GMT simple takeUTC stands for Coordinated Universal Time. A time expressed in UTC is essentially the time on the whole planet. A time expressed in GMT is the time in the timezone of the Greenwich meridian. In current computer science problems UTC and GMT expressed in absolute value happen to have identical values so they have been used interchangeably. This Time Zone Calculator converts between different time zones. To determine time zones for various locations, use this page as a reference.
