Hi,
I need to format the given date in "yyyy-MMM-dd HH:mm:ss" format for any locale and the given date is in "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss" this format.




The output of the code for en_US and es_MX(spanish) are fine and are respectively the following
en_US -- > 2011-Aug-04 11:30:00
es_MX -- > 2011-ago-04 11:30:00

But for ja_JP -- > 2011-8-04 11:30:00 (The months MMM is returned as single digit M).
Should we have any special handling for japanese (ja_JP) ?
Please help ..

Thanks
