Package containing the chronology classes which define the calendar systems.
This package contains all of the chronology implementations within the library. A chronology represents all the rules of a calendar system. Applications will create chronologies using the static factory methods on each specific Chronology class - getInstance. The currently provided chronology implementations are:
- GJ (GregorianJulian)
The package also contains all of the specialised field implementations. These classes are package scoped, along with various other chronology helper classes. The package scoped classes (which are not shown in the javadoc) do not form part of the public API of Joda-Time and may change at any time.
Class Summary Class Description AssembledChronologyAbstract Chronology that enables chronologies to be assembled from a container of fields. AssembledChronology.FieldsA container of fields used for assembling a chronology. BaseChronologyBaseChronology provides a skeleton implementation for chronology classes. BuddhistChronologyA chronology that matches the BuddhistCalendar class supplied by Sun. CopticChronologyImplements the Coptic calendar system, which defines every fourth year as leap, much like the Julian calendar. EthiopicChronologyImplements the Ethiopic calendar system, which defines every fourth year as leap, much like the Julian calendar. GJChronologyImplements the Gregorian/Julian calendar system which is the calendar system used in most of the world. GregorianChronologyImplements a pure proleptic Gregorian calendar system, which defines every fourth year as leap, unless the year is divisible by 100 and not by 400. IslamicChronologyImplements the Islamic, or Hijri, calendar system using arithmetic rules. IslamicChronology.LeapYearPatternTypeOpaque object describing a leap year pattern for the Islamic Chronology. ISOChronologyImplements a chronology that follows the rules of the ISO8601 standard, which is compatible with Gregorian for all modern dates. JulianChronologyImplements a pure proleptic Julian calendar system, which defines every fourth year as leap. LenientChronologyWraps another Chronology, ensuring all the fields are lenient. LimitChronologyWraps another Chronology to impose limits on the range of instants that the fields within a Chronology may support. StrictChronologyWraps another Chronology, ensuring all the fields are strict. ZonedChronologyWraps another Chronology to add support for time zones.
