Java 8 Date and Time API


Prior to Java 8, Java Date and Time has below drawbacks:

  • The existing classes java.util.Date and SimpleDateFormatter are not thread-safe.
  • Poor API design. For example, years in java.util.Date start at 1900, months start at 1, and days start at 0—not very intuitive.

Java SE 8 will ship with a new date and time API in java.time that offers greatly improved safety and functionality for developers. The new API models the domain well, with a good selection of classes for modeling a wide variety of developer use cases.

Following are some of the important classes introduced in java.time package.

Local: Simplified date-time API with no complexity of timezone handling.

Zoned: Specialized date-time API to deal with various timezones.

We have given examples for each type of Date and Time API here:

What is race condition?
A race condition is a situation in which two or more threads or processes are reading or writing some shared data, and the final result depends on the timing of how the threads are scheduled. Race conditions can lead to unpredictable results and subtle program bugs. A thread can prevent this from happening by locking an object. When an object is locked by one thread and another thread tries to call a synchronized method on the same object, the second thread will block until the object is unlocked.
Famous Quotations
If you don’t make mistakes, you’re not working on hard enough problems. And that’s a big mistake.
