Subject Re: [LANG]DurationUtils pull request reminder
Date Sun, 17 Mar 2019 21:49:22 GMT
I was thinking about this, the implementation of Duration class makes it
quite hard. If method "public long get(TemporalUnit unit)" from Duration
class supported all ChronoUnit it would be pretty easy to do, but with the
current implementation I would have to make a lot of switch or if
statements so therefore I don't see to much benefits from make this in more
objectish way
