I got tired of it once and wrote this class.

The totally brilliant thing about it is like xbase, date addition and
subtraction are greatly simplified.

Subject: [OT] The Way Java Handles Date



Hi, Just wondering if anyone found this aspect of Java annoying.  I know
this is
usually a faq, and a lot of people have put a lot of efforts making it
better.
But I just find that the learning curve is a bit too steep for new
comers.  And
it hasn't been improve in j2sdk-1.5 either, at least from the interface
point of
view.  For example, a developer still has to go through the whole
Calendar and
DateFormat process to get a Date from a String.... 

I feel like complaining today:).
