Customizing java Calendar

I have to migrate do java some c code of an old application. In this application a different calendar is used and its starting date is 01/01/1998 instead of 01/01/1970. Is it possible to extend GregorianCalendar to have 01/01/1998 as the starting date?

Why does the start date matter? What happened when you asked this old calendar for a date before its epoch?
