Strange problem while using JDBC

Hi guys,
I designed an app that has to connect to a datasource through JDBC. In my current implementation i have chossen MS Access as the backend database.
No my database has a table that contains some date columns. The program is supposed to show the date in dd/mm/yyyy format. The program works fine on my computer and shows the date in the given format. But the moment i deploy my app on another computer the date format changes and starts displaying the date in mm/dd/yyyy format.
Why is this problem not occuring on my computer and why this date format problem arises when the program is run on another computer.
Any suggetions will be welcome.
