SimpleTimeZone Class hasSameRules() method

  • hasSameRules() method is available in java.util package.
  • hasSameRules() method is used to check whether this SimpleTimeZone and the given TimeZone (tz) has the same rules and offset or not.
  • hasSameRules() method is a non-static method, it is accessible with the class object and if we try to access the method with the class name then we will get an error.
  • hasSameRules() method does not throw an exception at the time of checking rules and offset.


    public boolean hasSameRules(TimeZone tz);


  • TimeZone tz – represents theTimeZone object to be compared with this SimpleTimeZone.

Return value:

The return type of the method is boolean, it returns true when this object and the given object has same rules and offset otherwise it returns false.


// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of boolean hasSameRules(TimeZone tz) method
// of SimpleTimeZone

import java.util.*;

public class HasSameRulesOfSimpleTimeZone {
    public static void main(String args[]) {
        // Instantiates SimpleTimeZone object
        SimpleTimeZone s_tz1 = new SimpleTimeZone(360, "FRANCE");
        SimpleTimeZone s_tz2 = new SimpleTimeZone(760, "JAPAN");

        // By using hasSameRules() method
        // is to check whether the rules of
        // both objects are same or not
        boolean status = s_tz1.hasSameRules(s_tz2);

        // Display status
        System.out.print("s_tz1.hasSameRules(s_tz2): ");


s_tz1.hasSameRules(s_tz2): false
