Modifying the date format for specific locales through properties file


I have a specific requirement where the business are not happy with the GWT default DATE_SHORT format for the en_AU locale. Currently it is set to d/MM/y. 

I was convinced that there must be a way of overriding this. My approach was creating my own com/google/gwt/i18n/client/constants/ in my application thinking it would be picked up at runtime.
I have done a similar thing in the past with the file so expected this to work the same way.

However, I have had no luck with this approach this time. Could someone be able to tell me what I'm doing wrong, or is it perhaps not possible at all?
