You can see it defaults to Gregorian Calendar, and you ought to be able to get 8.51am, 14th March 2007 out of the printout somewhere. The code I am using looks like this:-
You can't use the Calendar() constructor at all. Close examination of the constructors (in the above mentioned API page) shows that they have protected access; you cannot get access to them from outside the java.util package. The reason the constructors exist is to be called from subclasses.
Inserted line breaks, corrected spelling errors, and added the code[/edit] [ March 14, 2007: Message edited by: Campbell Ritchie ]
