Get day of the week from GregorianCalendar

I have a date and I need to know the day of the week, so I used a GregorianCalendar object but I get back some dates that are incorrect.

GregorianCalendar calendar = new GregorianCalendar(year, month, day);
int i = calendar.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK);


What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!

EDIT SOLUTION:

mont--;
GregorianCalendar calendar = new GregorianCalendar(year, month, day);
int i = calendar.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK);

if(i == 2){
dayOfTheWeek = "Mon";
} else if (i==3){
dayOfTheWeek = "Tue";
} else if (i==4){
dayOfTheWeek = "Wed";
} else if (i==5){
dayOfTheWeek = "Thu";
} else if (i==6){
dayOfTheWeek = "Fri";
} else if (i==7){
dayOfTheWeek = "Sat";
} else if (i==1){
dayOfTheWeek = "Sun";
}

Answer
TimeZone timezone = TimeZone.getDefault();
Calendar calendar = new GregorianCalendar(timezone);
calendar.set(year, month, day, hour, minute, second);

String monthName=calendar.getDisplayName(Calendar.MONTH, Calendar.SHORT, Locale.getDefault());//Locale.US);
String dayName=calendar.getDisplayName(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK, Calendar.SHORT, Locale.getDefault());//Locale.US);
