Subject Re: [jira] Created: (HARMONY-6269) [classlib][luni] Default GMT TimeZone has no display name defined
Date Wed, 15 Jul 2009 03:15:38 GMT
Hi Cath,

In the ICU api doc, SimpleDateFormat, it says "For time zones that have no
names, use strings GMT+hours:minutes or GMT-hours:minutes. ". You can find
details here <http://icu-project.org/apiref/icu4j/>.
