Check out the following applet code and the package it belongs to:

It has sample code of switching Locale to Japanese:
Locale[] locales = Utility.getG7Locales();
Locale locale = locales[8]; // Japanese Locale
ClassLoader classLoader = this.getClass().getClassLoader(); // reload myself
ResourceBundle choiceResources =
  ResourceBundle.getBundle("ChoiceResource", locale);
patternText.setText(choiceResources.getString("patternText")); //redisplay text...

You can get JDK doc as a separate download from Javasoft.com.
