Locale Date Format Example

In this tutorial you will learn about how to find the date format of a Locale

In a different locale the date format is different so when developing a global application it is required to give the functionality in the application to use date according to their locale.

In the example given below to find the Locale's date format I first find out the available locales, created a new date object then set the date formatting style and locale into the getDateInstance() method of DateFormat, then use the format() method of DateFormat class to format the date object.

Example :

package devmanuals.com;
import java.util.Locale;
import java.util.Date;
import java.text.DateFormat;
public class LocaleDateFormat
public static void main(String arr[])
Locale loc[]= Locale.getAvailableLocales();
Date date= new Date();
DateFormat df;
System.out.println("\t Available Locales \t Date Format \n");
for(int i=0; i<loc.length; i++)
df= DateFormat.getDateInstance(DateFormat.MEDIUM, loc[i]);
String fd= df.format(date);
