>          Components: java
>    Affects Versions: 1.8.0

>            Priority: Minor
> At least, as far as I can see it doesn't support it. We're looking at 
> migrating to 1.8, and these additional types are a big motivator.
> I would advocate adding each one of the new logical types as supported 
> primitive types in the IDL... if that sounds good to you, I can probably look 
> into doing it tomorrow.
