Default TimeZone Offset

Please Login to Remove!

I am using following way to calculate time zone offset

TimeZone tz= TimeZone.getTimeZone("America/New_York");
Calendar c=Calendar.getInstance();
c.setTimeZone(tz);
c.setTime(new Date());
double ofst=tz.getOffset(1, c.get(Calendar.YEAR), c.get(Calendar.MONTH), c.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH), c.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK), c.get(Calendar.MILLISECOND));
System.out.println("Offset: "+ofst);

it gives me -25200000 offset

if i pass value as: America/NewYork it gives me 0.0

anyone knows proper way of calculating offset
what is difference b/w America/New_York & America/NewYork
how can i get timezone offset of toronto if i pass value as
Canada/Toronto it gives me 0.0
