Need to use unix TZ timezone strings in java Timezone class

We have an application that uses the unix timezone string formats "EST5EDT",
"PST8PDT" etc. 
I need to convert these timezone strings into equivalent java timezones that
can be understood by java.util.TimeZone class. 

If I pass the above unix timezone strings, it returns the server timezone
and not the java equivalent of the unix timezone.

I would appreciate any help in resolving this.
