How do I get the XMLGregorianCalendar current time GMT?

Hello,

How do I get the current datetime using XMLGregorianCalendar in GMT format?  I've tried the below method but that returns it based on my computers time I believe.  

 private XMLGregorianCalendar getCurrentDateTime(){
        GregorianCalendar gc = new GregorianCalendar();
        DatatypeFactory dtf=null;
        try {
            dtf = DatatypeFactory.newInstance();
        } catch (DatatypeConfigurationException ex) {
            Logger.getLogger(SyncServiceImpl.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
        }
        return dtf.newXMLGregorianCalendar(gc);
    }

Thanks!
