Good point! Instead of complaining about it, the best way is to come up with
a better way ourselves. Unless of course we can persuade Sun to do it for us

Mind you, Roedy Green already has a BigDate package (if I remember the name
correctly) and I was starting to think about using it before I finally
figured out the date stuff that I needed to know. Maybe that would meet your
needs. Personally, I've resisted going that way because I didn't want to use
something "non-standard" if at all possible. But that's just me.

As for the tutorial you saw on dates, I'd be curious to know where it is. I
don't remember seeing much of anything about dates in the Java Tutorial but
maybe you mean some other tutorial. I figured out most of what I've learned
about dates from Google posts where people were discussing problems and that
was not the nicest way to do it.
