Joda-Time

Joda-Time provides a quality replacement for the Java date and time classes. The design allows for multiple calendar systems, while still providing a simple API. The 'default' calendar is the ISO8601 standard which is used by XML. The Gregorian, Julian, Buddhist, Coptic, Ethiopic and Islamic systems are also included. Supporting classes include time zone, duration, format and parsing.

Joda-time is no longer in active development except to keep timezone data up to date. From Java SE 8 onwards, users are asked to migrate to

java.time
(JSR-310) - a core part of the JDK which replaces this project. For Android users,
java.time
is added in API 26+. Projects needing to support lower API levels can use the ThreeTenABP library.

As a flavour of Joda-Time, here's some example code:

public boolean isAfterPayDay(DateTime datetime) {
  if (datetime.getMonthOfYear() == 2) {   // February is month 2!!
    return datetime.getDayOfMonth() > 26;
  }
  return datetime.getDayOfMonth() > 28;
}

public Days daysToNewYear(LocalDate fromDate) { LocalDate newYear = fromDate.plusYears(1).withDayOfYear(1); return Days.daysBetween(fromDate, newYear); }

public boolean isRentalOverdue(DateTime datetimeRented) { Period rentalPeriod = new Period().withDays(2).withHours(12); return datetimeRented.plus(rentalPeriod).isBeforeNow(); }

public String getBirthMonthText(LocalDate dateOfBirth) { return dateOfBirth.monthOfYear().getAsText(Locale.ENGLISH); }

Joda-Time is licensed under the business-friendly Apache 2.0 licence.
