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:
