Time and Date

Support for international date/time calculations was very limited in the early years of Java. In this vacuum the Joda-Time by Stephen Colebourne became the de-facto standard for advanced date/time logic which finally became part of the JDK (Java 8, JEP 150). The package java.time provides a solid API for date/time calculations and local representations of time stamps in different calendar systems.
