Hi friends,
Check the following code :

String[] monthName = {"Jan", "Feb", "Mar", "Apr", "May", "Jun", "Jul", Aug","Sep", "Oct", "Nov", "Dec"};
int forMon = 0;
Calendar fromCal = Calendar.getInstance();
Calendar toCal = Calendar.getInstance();
String forMonth = monthName[3]; // selMonth is the month value which i selected from DropDown

for (int i = 0; i < 12; i++) {
if (forMonth.equals(monthName[i])) {
fromCal.set(2007, i, 1);
Calendar cal = new GregorianCalendar(2007, forMon, 1);
int days = cal.getActualMaximum(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH);
toCal.set(2007, i, days);
forMon = i;
break;
}
}
SimpleDateFormat dateFormat = new SimpleDateFormat("dd/MM/yyyy");
String startDate = dateFormat.format(fromCal.getTime());
String endDate = dateFormat.format(toCal.getTime());
System.out.println(startDate);
System.out.println(endDate);

When i run the above code for the month of

Jan the output :01/01/2007 31/01/2007

It has to do with your "forMon" variable. You set it after you use it in an iteration. So basically, what is happening is that each month uses the previous month's number of days to find the end of the month.
