        Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0-b105)

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        SimpleDateFormat formats a date time in Finnish Improperly.
        The format MMMM hh:mm:ss a results in September 11:23:18 AM in English and syyskuu 11:23:18 AM in Finnish.


        STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
        Format a date using SimpleDateFormat with the pattern "MMMM hh:mm:ss a" and Finnish Locale

        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        syyskuu 11:23:18 AP
        ACTUAL -
        syyskuu 11:23:18 AM

        REPRODUCIBILITY :
        This bug can be reproduced always.

        ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
        SimpleDateFormat format = new SimpleDateFormat("MMMM hh:mm:ss a",new Locale("fi","FI");

        System.out.println("Current time in locale " + locale.toString() + " :" + format.format(new Date()));
        ---------- END SOURCE ----------

        CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
        Provide DateFormatSymbols with the proper translations inthe SimpleDateFormat constructor instead of the Locale
