The New Date And
Time (JSR-310) targeted for JDK 1.7 will provide an object oriented - fluent
API, in contrary to currently available java.util.Date and
java.util.GregorianCalendar. However we are discussing now different naming
options, which are summarized here. The first option is more consistent and uses a generic scheme (a context) for the naming of the classes. The second option is shorter, more fluent but not always consistent. So what do you prefer? Participate in the discussion and influence one of the core JDK 1.7-APIs!
