Hi Can someone suggest me how to set a particular locale if it is not configured on the machine:
I am developing an application in java which is suppose to be used in INDIA,
so
Locale locIN = new Locale("hi","IN");

but When i used this locIN to format the date, It shows me ???
as I am sitting in singapore so I think here local locale is chinese...

My seniors says this is the problem of setting ?
Can someone tell me how to do this setting and what is this setting ?


Thanks and Regards,

Not sure, but go through the System class to find how to get Properties, then the System class for setProperty, write and read methods. You can probably but a list of Properties in a text file and read them back into your default Properties.

Anybody else able to help?
