The integration of JSR 310 into JDK 8 is complete and development ramping down. Only show stopper issues are being considered for the initial JDK 8 release. All features additions will be considered for JDK 9 and bug fixes may be evaluated for JDK 8 update releases.
More information is available at the Threeten Github home page.
The JSR 310 public discussion list is hosted on SourceForge.
The integration into the JDK is done in the OpenJDK ThreeTen Project. The threeten-dev mailing list is used for ThreeTen relevant discussion and commits.
Java Time API
- The Java Time API is now included in JDK 8 Developer Preview. Download from JDKTM 8 Early Access Releases.
- The API Javadoc matching the JDK 8 Developer Preview is available from: JDK 8 API Javadoc
- Issues can be reported against JDK 8 Developer Preview using
the Java Bug Database http://bugs.sun.com.
Java Time bugs in OpenJDK are tracked using JBS in "core-libs:java.time".
- The Project Threeten Repository is no longer in use, with bug fixes and updates are being directly pushed to the OpenJDK TL repository.
- Sept 24: At JavaOne 2013 two sessions were dedicated to the Java Time API.
- Sept 10: The Java Tutorial now includes the Date Time trail with an introduction to the API's design, types, and classes. The new trail covers the classes based on the standard ISO calendar system and includes info on converting date and time values to other calendar systems. There is also a Legacy Date-Time page on migrating from the java.util date classes to the new java.time APIs.
- August 27: Java FX 8 includes a DatePicker built on the JSR 310 Java Time API. See how it is used with Netbeans, the DatePicker, and more in Jim Weaver's Rich Client Java Blog.
