Hi,
I am trying to get the start date for a week when given the week number an year.

My calender setting will be

Calendar gregorianCalendar = new GregorianCalendar();
gregorianCalendar.setFirstDayOfWeek(Calendar.MONDAY);
gregorianCalendar.setMinimalDaysInFirstWeek(4);

for example:
if my method is passed in 40/2005 i.e. week 40 in year 2005
The method should pass back 03/10/2005 i.e. 3rd Oct 2005
