Overview

A list of all supported time zones is shown on the screen. By choosing a time zone from the list, the user can see the time offset it has. Method TimeZone.getTimeZone() allows the application to retrieve the chosen Time Zone and method TimeZone.getRawOffset() is used to retrieve the raw time offset for the chosen time zone.

Postconditions

This application allows the user to retrieve the time offset for any time zone he or she needs.
