Hello ,
I am having problems with today.getTime()

my code is simply:
java.util.Date today = new java.util.Date();
new Timestamp (today.getTime()) )

but the timestamp is 1hr behind. My system time is correct

Is this releated to the day light savings stuff?

i would think today.getTime() would get my system time

Thanks for any help

This could be a daylight savings issue.  If you are on a Microsoft OS, go to the site and run windows updates to make sure their fixes are installed.

Yes you might need the day light saving update:

The latest version of the JDK has taken care of this.
