I like Joda Time too, and used to be apprehensive about integrating it as a dependency into my projects -- at least for simple things that I could probably do with Date/Calendar, just more hassle... But I am less apprehensive now that I know that Stephen Colebourne from Joda- Time is developing JSR-310 (https://jsr-310.dev.java.net/) -- a new Date and Time API for Java 7. If you look at the API, the new javax.time is basically stealing (I mean integrating) all of the best parts of Joda-Time. Now, I am happily using org.joda.time.LocalDate because I know that eventually, I will just need to change my imports to upgrade to javax.time.calendar.LocalDate. I haven't had a close look at Scala-Time, but I am not sure if I understand the value when using straight Joda Time with Scala was so painless. But I am sure there is room to leverage Scala features for things like implicit conversions. --~--~---------~--~----~------------~-------~--~----~ You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Lift" group.
