It does, as your own Syste.out output shows.  I think the problem is
in the ResourceBundle class (ot the classes supporting it).  If you
change the locale related system properties, this won't affect
ResourceBundle at all, much like changing java.class.path doesn't have
any effect on the classes your VM can load.

I fear you have to set your properties before you start a new VM (and
as a corrolary have to start a new VM whenever you want the change to
take any effect).  And then, I'm not sure whether user.language is the
property that get's consulted by ResourceBundle at all.

Sets an Ant property, not a Java system property.  For a system
property you have to use the ANT_OPTS environment variable.
