The new JDK 1.8 Date and Time API – JSR-310

The next release of Java, JDK 1.8, will have a new date and time API, finally replacing the confusing, slow, and difficult Date and Calendar APIs. This session by Stephen Colebourne is an in-depth look at the new API (JSR-310), including details on how it was designed, what problems it fixes, and what new techniques it enables. If you’ve ever cursed the Date or Calendar class, then you owe it to yourself to watch this video. Filmed at JAX 2013, Mainz.
