    Default get(GregorianCalendar.DAY_OF_WEEK)

    [ code = java ]
    import java.util.GregorianCalendar;
    public class Aries {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
    GregorianCalendar c = new GregorianCalendar(2019, 5, 7);
    System.out.println("Day:" + c.get(GregorianCalendar.DAY_OF_WEEK));
    Hi, can anyone explain why this output is 6 instead of 3? Based on this list it should be 3.
    Days of week are represented as:
    SUNDAY = 1
    MONDAY = 2
    TUESDAY = 3
    THURSDAY = 5
    FRIDAY = 6
    SATURDAY = 7
    Thank you

    You will get Day 3 if you use GregorianCalendar() without passing any parameters to it.

    • GregorianCalendar() - initializes the object with the current date and time in the default locale and time zone
    • GregorianCalendar(int year, int month, int dayOfMonth) - initializes the object with the date-set passed as parameters in the default locale and time zone

    There are totally two different things.
