How to display time in different languages?


This example uses DateFormat class to display time in Italian.

import java.text.DateFormat;
import java.util.*;

public class Main {
   public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
      Date d1 = new Date();
      System.out.println("today is "+ d1.toString()); 
      Locale locItalian = new Locale("it");
      DateFormat df = DateFormat.getDateInstance
      (DateFormat.FULL, locItalian);
