    Angry client TimeZone in JSP

    I want to do that i tried to convert datetime between the local
    timezone of the SERVER machine (not the CLIENT machine) and the UTC

    datetime.

    What I want to do in my WEB application is let the user at the

    client side
    enter a datetime (using calendar) Then, when the page postback to

    the server
    side, the appplication have to know from which timezone the CLIENT

    is (note
    that: this is a WEB app. There are a thousand of clients from the

    internet)
    and then convert the entered datetime into UTC datetime before

    saving it
    into database. Later when showing the UTC datetime retrieved from

    our
    database, I want first it is converted to the local CLIENT timezone

    before
    show it on the web UI.

    Do you get the client timezone as input somewhere?

    I think you can use request.getLocale() for knowing the user timezone.
