Calendar.set(..) not working on android 6.0

I need to set calendar to next week's monday. My code works on Android 9.0 but on Android 6.0 it works only while debugging.

Problem is with Calendar.set(..) functions, they just don't work. For example calendar.set(Calendar.WEEK_OF_YEAR, 17) won't change calendar week to 17, but when it is debugging it will change it to 17.

Here is my code:

       Calendar mcurrentTime = Calendar.getInstance(Locale.GERMANY);
        if(AppHelper.getInstance().getNextWeek() != 0){

        mcurrentTime.set(Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK, Calendar.MONDAY);



Android 9.0 weekNumberTv shows 17

Android 6.0 weekNumberTv shows 16

If start debugging mode

Android 6.0 weekNumberTv shows 17

    • Sounds like different default week schemes. Do you always get 1 week too early? The Calendar class is poorly designed and long outdated. Use java.time, the modern Java date and time API, for simpler and more natural code or behavour that is easier to predict.

To do time calculations in versions prior to 7.0 sadly you will have to use JavaTime package or its backport.

Implement ThreeTen Android Backport library:

implementation 'com.jakewharton.threetenabp:threetenabp:1.2.0'


Then initialize it in onCreate method.


Make sure that these libraries are included and not Java 8 ones.

import org.threeten.bp.LocalDate
import org.threeten.bp.temporal.ChronoUnit
import org.threeten.bp.temporal.WeekFields
import com.jakewharton.threetenabp.AndroidThreeTen

Code to finish work

var mCurrentTime = LocalDate.now()
val weekFields = WeekFields.of(Locale.GERMANY)

val currentDayOfWeek = mCurrentTime.get(weekFields.dayOfWeek())
//subtract day of week to monday
//add week starting from monday
//get weekOfYear
val weekOfCurrentTime=mCurrentTime.get(weekFields.weekOfYear())

Sorry for Kotlin. Java is on vacation.
