Date using Calendar for a spcific Locale

I tried the following but it didn't work as expected:
Locale localeItaly = new Locale("it"); Calendar calendar = Calendar.getInstance(localeItaly); Date dateItaly = calendar.getTime(); System.out.println("Date in Italy = "+dateItaly);
which printed :
Date in Italy = Sat Feb 19 14:26:32 IST 2011
I was expecting it to print the current date in Italy.
Can anyone explain?

You could try using Locale.ITALY instead of "it".

Rather than just trying things, I suggest you refer to the API,

I agree. Here's the link:

Chinese Calender Date is not able to parse
java.util.Date getYear() method is deprecated
java.util.date time is different than the system time
All times are in JavaRanch time: GMT-6 in summer, GMT-7 in winter
