>                 Key: SPARK-27008
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK-27008
>             Project: Spark
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: SQL
>    Affects Versions: 2.4.0
>            Reporter: Maxim Gekk
>            Priority: Major

> Currently, Spark supports the java.sql.Date as external types for Catalyst's DateType.
It accepts and produces values of such types. Since Java 8, base classes for dates are java.time.Instant,
java.time.LocalDate/LocalDateTime, and java.time.ZonedDateTime. Need to add new converters
from/to LocalDate.
> The LocalDate type holds epoch days, and directly reflects to Catalyst's DateType.
> Main motivations for the changes:
> - Smoothly support Java 8 time API
> - Avoid inconsistency of calendars used inside Spark 3.0 (Proleptic Gregorian calendar)
and inside of java.sql.Date (hybrid calendar - Julian + Gregorian). 
> - Make conversion independent from current system timezone.
> In case of collecting values of DateType, the following SQL config can control types
of returned values:
>  - spark.sql.catalyst.dateType with supported values "Date" (by default, java.sql.Date)
and "Instant" (java.time.LocalDate)
