How can I get the time stored in the database in a different country's time zone? All the trasactions in the database are logged in against one time zone(CST), but users in Germany/U.K./France/Australia want to see all the times in their time zones. Orcale has new_time function to convert a 'time' from "this" time zone to "other" time zone, but this does not cover all the time zones in the world. The German time zone is not supported by this function. What is a good way to convert the time stored in the database to a different time zone that will take care of the daylight saving also (other than using new_time function)?
