While coding stuff for tomorrow's wikis.sun.com release, I watched this pretty good talk in which Joshua Bloch, once again, excellently addresses the issues and pitfalls of API design:
During the talk, Joshua makes an interesting comment. A JSR was created earlier this year, that is supposed to *finally* replace the crippled Date and Calendar classes in JDK. JSR 310: Date and Time API is lead by folks responsible for Joda Time library, that's a great sign! The request well captures current problems and needs, and I can't wait to see it implemented as a part of JDK.
