SimpleTimeZone is a concrete subclass of TimeZone that represents a time zone for use with a Gregorian calendar. The class holds an offset from GMT, called raw offset, and start and end rules for a daylight saving time schedule. Since it only holds single values for each, it cannot handle historical changes in the offset from GMT and the daylight saving schedule, except that the setStartYear method can specify the year when the daylight saving time schedule starts in effect.
