JodaTime, for easier DateTime handling in Java

Having tasted the DateTime classes in .Net made you wish that there is something like it on the Java World. Compared to .Net's DateTime, what's available on Java world regarding the date and time handling feelds a little dated. It turns out that there is even  a better stuff on Java, JodaTime. It has more detailed and useful abstraction regarding date time matters. It even has a sister library NodaTime for .Net which seems shows that the abstraction choices adopted to significant number of developers.

You can head out to it's front page and read "Why Joda Time?" section on overview of the relevance of the library. For me personally, it makes the bridging from .Net world of DateTime to Java world easier
