I'm having lots of fun working with dates, primarily that for some reason the dates in the database are in two different time zones ( i.e GMT and BST ). I need to extract these dates and put them all in the same time zone. I don't want to convert them as that will change the actual dates i.e there is an hour difference between the two time zones. I just want all the dates in the same time zone regardless of their original zone.
I'd also like to know how to parse a String as a date - the constructor and parse have been deprecated. Can anyone provide an example?
