Java Time Zone Descriptions

Java has 31 time zone codes (e.g., GMT, PST, JST,...).  Does anyone know the descriptions for them.  I know the obvious ones (e.g., PST=Pacific Standard Time).  But I'd like to know all of them to provide users with a way to choose the time zone description rather than the code.

Thanks,

Emilio

Those are all the timezones I know so far


EET                  Eastern European Time       2
CET                  Central European Time       1
GMT                  Greenwich Mean Time             0


EST                  Eastern Standart Time       -5
CST                  Central Standart Time       -6
MST                  Mountain Standart Time      -7
PST                  Pacific Standart Time       -8

But you can look them in a atlas where they should be found without any problem.
You may have seen a D as the second letter of a timezone as in

EDT, CDT, MDT, PDT ther the D corresponds to the daylight saving time zone (that's new in Java), you will not find those abbrivations in an atlas.

You can enumerate timezones with
String ids[] = TimeZone.getAvailableIDs();
