I've updated GDate and JDate. GDate now has a constructor that takes a LocalDate as an argument. JDate now has a method getLocalDate() that returns a LocalDate object. I've also marked the Date constructor and getDate method as deprecated in my version of the source files. Would you like these to be able to update jr.jar? If so, how do I go about passing them on?

First, this forum (the ranch office forum) is for discussions regarding the ranch itself.

Second, this topic feels like it was incorrectly posted, and should have been a response to a conversation already in progress.


Regardless, I am going to assume that this post was done in error, and will be correctly posted by the OP later.

[EDIT: BTW, if the OP feels that this topic was locked in error, please (in PM) provide some context, along with (if possible) a few recommended forums to move this topic to, and I will move this topic for you.]

Given that the GDate and JDate classes are part of the JR library I thought that the Ranch Office forum would be the correct place to post when asking how I go about contributing a change I have made. Perhaps you would be kind enough to point out where should I have posted instead?

Thanks for your help in enabling me to correct my mistake. I'm going to go away and think about whether I share my good intentions in future and in the meantime I hope, Henry, that your day perks up.

Rant over.

For any other ranch staff reading this, I would appreciate it if you could point out where I should have posted instead so I don;t make the same mistake in the future. Thank you.

Ash.



Yeah. We may be bartenders/sheriffs, but sometimes without enough context, and only a few seconds to review a post, we miss stuff. Please don't shoot the sheriffs, we are only doing our jobs.

Anyway, I still am not sure where this belongs, but since you have provided some more context. And asked for other ranch staff help, I will forward your request here.

Henry

Ashley,

Let's look into updating that jar once you're in that section of the Cattle Drive.

Moving this thread to the CD forum.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
