      Description

      Japanese calendars, both in `java.time.chrono` and `java.util` packages support the upcoming Japanese new era, which will be in effect from May 1st, 2019. At the moment, the name of the era is not yet known, placeholder names ("元号" for Japanese, "NewEra" for other languages) are provided for its display names. The placeholder names will be replaced with the legitimate era name in a future update, thus applications should not depend on those placeholder names. Use integer values to refer to the new era instead. For example:

      `java.time.chrono.JapaneseEra.of(3).getDisplayName(TextStyle.FULL, Locale.US)`

      or
      ```
      new java.util.Calendar.Builder()
          .setCalendarType("japanese")
          .setFields(Calendar.ERA, 5,
              Calendar.YEAR, 1,
              Calendar.MONTH, Calendar.MAY,
              Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH, 1)
          .build()
          .getDisplayName(Calendar.ERA, Calendar.LONG, Locale.US)
      ```
      will output "NewEra"
