Date Time conversion to different timezone and desired formats
In this blog, i will outline how to use UDF as date formatter and how to convert it to different time zone. Here, i have taken a requirement from scn and implemented the same.
Here, in the below code we are getting date as String and converting it to date type. And DateFormat class is used to convert incoming date to required date format and required time zone as well by using set and get timezone.
DateFormat converter = new SimpleDateFormat(“dd-MM-yyyy”);
DateFormat converter1 = new SimpleDateFormat(“yyyy-MM-dd’T’HH:mm:ssZ:00”);
In the above code we have used a date format and timezone. you can use different time zone and format as per your requirement.
The code is working fine for converting to AEST or PST or other timezones.
But when I am trying to convert the time to UTC or GMT it's not working. It is giving back the input time in output.
