    Default Calendar days mixed up..

    Hi, I'm new to the forum and I'm building a calendar-based program..
    Having some difficulties with setting the calendar straight, here is my code:

    Java Code:
    GregorianCalendar cal = new GregorianCalendar(year, month, 1);	//setting calendar for the first of that month
                    nod = cal.getActualMaximum(GregorianCalendar.DAY_OF_MONTH);
                    som = cal.get(GregorianCalendar.DAY_OF_WEEK);
                    System.out.println("Number of days in month: " +nod);
                    System.out.println("First day of month is a (nr): " +som);
                    //Draw calendar
                    for (int i=1; i<=nod; i++){
                            int row = new Integer((i+som-2)/7);  //(1+2-2)/7= 0.11    = 0
                            int column  =  (i+som-2)%7;			 //(1+2-2)%7= 
                            //System.out.println("Row: " +row);
                            //System.out.println("Column: " +column);
                            mtblCalendar.setValueAt(i, row, column);
                    //Apply renderers
                    tblCalendar.setDefaultRenderer(tblCalendar.getColumnClass(0), new tblCalendarRenderer());
    Now "som" always receives a day ahaid of the first day of the month. Expl: this year in march, the first is on a monday.. What does "som = cal.get(GregorianCalendar.DAY_OF_WEEK);" it gets "2" back. Even though I set the firstday on a monday "cal.setFirstDayOfWeek(1);"

    How come? Can someone get me some clarity in this?

    Thanks alot!

    Edit: solved with work around
