Hi Campbell is right. 0 represents Jan,so 4 will represent May. When you pass 2008,4,11 to teh constructor, it has taken it as May 11,2008, which happens to be a Sunday You have written your own method to get the Month and Day . So you output the Month as April, based on the case statement (case 1 is Jan to you). When you want to get the Day,in the case statement, you have written as CALENDAR.SUNDAY as Sunday and so on.

Please note the inconsistency in the Calendar API: weekdays start at 1 (Calendar.SUNDAY) whereas months start at 0 (Calendar.JANUARY). That's why it is always a wise idea to use the constants instead of hard coded values like 4.
