public static Collator getInstance(Locale desiredLocale)

Parameter: This method takes the desired locale for which collator object has to be created.

Return Value: it provides the new collator object having the desired locale.



Below are the examples to illustrate the getInstance() method:

Example 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// getInstance() method
  
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
  
            // Creating and initializing new simple rule
            String simple = "< a< b< c< d";
  
            // Creating and initializing
            // new RuleBasedCollator Object
            RuleBasedCollator col_1
                = new RuleBasedCollator(simple);
  
            // Creating and initializing Collator
            // Object with Locale.UK
            // using getInstance() method
            Collator col_2
                = Collator.getInstance(Locale.UK);
  
            // display result
            if (col_1.equals(col_2))
                System.out.println(
                    col_1
                    + " is equal to "
                    + col_2);
            else
                System.out.println(
                    col_1
                    + " is not equal to "
                    + col_2);
        }
  
        catch (ClassCastException e) {
  
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
        catch (ParseException e) {
  
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
java.text.RuleBasedCollator@5eb2e1c2 is not equal to java.text.RuleBasedCollator@289747d6

Example 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// getInstance() method
  
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] argv)
    {
        try {
  
            // Creating and initializing Collator Object
            // with Locale.UK
            // using getInstance() method
            Collator col_1 = Collator.getInstance(Locale.UK);
  
            // Creating and initializing Collator Object
            // with Locale.US
            // using getInstance() method
            Collator col_2 = Collator.getInstance(Locale.US);
  
            // display result
            if (col_1.equals(col_2))
                System.out.println(
                    col_1
                    + " is equal to "
                    + col_2);
            else
                System.out.println(
                    col_1
                    + " is not equal to "
                    + col_2);
        }
  
        catch (ClassCastException e) {
  
            System.out.println("Exception thrown : " + e);
        }
    }
}
Output:
java.text.RuleBasedCollator@289747d6 is equal to java.text.RuleBasedCollator@289747d6
