I need to set the start of year to a different date than 01/01/.
Lets say I want to set the start date of the year to 23-02.
I want the java calendar classes to return the fields e.g week days, month etc according to this new date.for example Calendar.get(Calendar.MONTH)) for above date should return 0 as it is the first month of my fiscal year.

Is there any way to set this?

Thanks
Ahmad

Sounds like you need to implement your own Calendar class.

Sounds like you should take a look at Joda-Time, to see how it can help you.

What are you doing this for? Why not just use Math.random() to random numbers between 1 and 12 then have if else statements to set it so like if it comes up with 2 then the second Math.random() is only going to go between 1 and 28 or however many days there are in February. Unless you need to set something as a new date permanentaly then just do what others said.

See if packages like Time And Money or Joda Time do what you need. Or just google for Java Fiscal Year and see what pops up.
