    Default Problem in getting time of different time zone

    TimeZone timeZone1 = TimeZone.getTimeZone("America/Los_Angeles");
    TimeZone timeZone2 = TimeZone.getTimeZone("Europe/Copenhagen");
    Calendar calendar = new GregorianCalendar(timeZone1);
    System.out.println("Time in LA: "+calendar.getTime());

    I run this code but it is not working and giving me the current time in current time zone.

    You might find a solution by studying the Calendar API. I'm not sure what you mean by "the current time in the current time zone," but you might try getting a Calendar instance specifying the time zone, locale, or both.
