This is a simple library targetted at converting objects to and from strings. As well as the standard interface plugin point for adding your own converters it has annotation based conversion. This allows you to add the
FromString to methods of your class and have Joda-Convert pick them up.
This is a library providing collections, iterators and lists based on primitive types rather than objects. Using collections in this way can yield considerable space and performance benefits over boxed primitives.
The project began life a number of years ago as a fork from Commons Primitives. The main difference is that Joda-Primitives extends the original JDK collections interfaces for seamless integration, whereas Commons-Primitives requires wrappers to interoperate.
It is hoped that support for other collection types may be added, however it is not top of my list of things to do.
