Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-65) [lang] Expose DateIterator or add DateUtils.iterator(startDate, endDate)
Date Mon, 05 Jun 2006 19:42:30 GMT
    [ ] 

Henri Yandell commented on LANG-65:

Generally we're avoiding adding too much as as you get deeper into the java.time stuff you
quickly start wanting to rewrite the whole thing.

Given that Stephen's already done that with JODA Time, better for us to just encourage people
to use that.

So the idea dropping the iterator in 3.0 would be in the interest of keeping our time functionality
to a minimum.
