        // creating and initializing  MessageFormat
        MessageFormat mf
            = new MessageFormat("{0, number, #}");
  
        // setting new Locale for
        // message format object
        // using setLocale() method
        mf.setLocale(new Locale("en-US"));
  
        // getting Locale
