      java version "1.3.1_01"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.1_01)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.1_01, mixed mode)

      In Ukraine first day of week is Monday but not Sunday

      By defaults in the calendar object obtained with locale ua_UA getFirstDayOfWeek
      () function return SUNDAY as a first week day.
      The code below illustrates this problem.

      ====================================

      import java.util.Locale;
      import java.util.Calendar;

      public class Test {
      public static void main(String[] args) {

      Locale locale = new Locale("ua", "UA");
      System.out.println("Locale: '" + locale + "'");
      System.out.println("SUNDAY: " + String.valueOf
      (Calendar.SUNDAY));
      System.out.println("MONDAY: " + String.valueOf
      (Calendar.MONDAY));
                      Calendar calend = Calendar.getInstance(locale);
      System.out.println("Default first week day: " + String.valueOf
      (calend.getFirstDayOfWeek()));
      }

      }


      The console input produced:

      Locale: 'ua_UA'
      SUNDAY: 1
      MONDAY: 2
      Default first week day: 1

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.3.1"

      FULL OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION :
       Windows 2000 EN, SP2
       Windows 98 SE



      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      I tried to use a GregorianCalendar with my Locale. There is
      a problem: the first day of a week in Hungary is MONDAY,
      but in the SUN files that is specified SUNDAY.
      This is a not-a-big problem for US people, but for me,
      that's a bug.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      1, Make a new Calendar, with locale (hu,HU)
      2, Test the first day of week
      3, In Hungary, the first day of a week is Monday, not Sunday

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      The firstday should be Calendar.MONDAY, not
      Calendar.SUNDAY

      This bug can be reproduced always.

      ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
      import java.util.*;

      ...

      Calendar cal = new GregorianCalendar(TimeZone.getTimeZone("ECT"), new Local
      ("hu","HU"));

      int firstday = cal.getFirstDayOfWeek();

       if (firstday == Calendar.MONDAY)
        System.out.println("The first day is MONDAY");

       if (firstday == Calendar.SUNDAY)
        System.out.println("The first day is SUNDAY");

      ...
      ---------- END SOURCE ----------

      CUSTOMER WORKAROUND :
      Well, you cannot use hungarian locale for a Calendar,
      you should use:
      de, CH.
      It works, but it isn't the ultimate soultion
