Learn about the new date and time API that’s introduced in Java 8.

Introduction to date and time API

Java 8 introduces a new Date/Time API that is thread-safe, easier to read, and more comprehensive than the previous API. Java’s calendar implementation has not changed much since it was first introduced, and Joda-Time is widely regarded as a better replacement. Java 8’s new Date/Time API is very similar to Joda-Time.
