DateFormatSymbols

Name

DateFormatSymbols

Synopsis

Class Name:

java.text.DateFormatSymbols

Superclass:

java.lang.Object

Immediate Subclasses:

None

Interfaces Implemented:

java.lang.Cloneable, java.io.Serializable

Availability:

New as of JDK 1.1

Description

The DateFormatSymbols class encapsulates date and time formatting data that is locale-specific, like the names of the days of the week and the names of the months. Typically, you do not need to instantiate DateFormatSymbols yourself. Instead, an instance is automatically created for you, behind the scenes, when you use one of the factory methods in DateFormat to create a DateFormat object. You can retrieve a DateFormatSymbols object by calling the getDateFormatSymbols() method of SimpleDateFormat. Once you have a DateFormatSymbols object, you can modify the strings it uses if you want to change them.
