Joda Time - I18N support

Joda-Time provides a complete quality alternative to the JDK date and time classes. Many aspects of date and time require internationalized data. This project provides access to additional I18N data not supplied as part of the standard Joda-Time release.

  • Time zones by territory
  • First day of week by territory
  • Business week by territory
  • Weekend by territory

As a flavour of the functionality, here's how to find out what days are the weekend in Egypt:

  Territory t = Territory.forID("EG");
  int weekendStartDay = t.getWeekendStart();
  int weekendEndDay = t.getWeekendEnd();
Version 0.1 was released on 2006-08-21 - Download now


Various documentation is available:


Release 0.1 is the current latest release. This release is a beta release and may have bugs. The API is liable to change without deprecation until version 1.0 is released. Please bear in mind that this project is separate from Joda-Time itself.

The dependencies are Joda-Time 1.0 or later. We recommend JDK 1.4 or later, and have performed no testing on earlier JDKs.
