Getting JSR-310 into Java 8 is a major step (see http://threeten.org/), but to make it even more useful it should be recognized by major other APIs. There are issue trackers where you can trivailly vote on to help get this message across to API suppliers:
JPA -> https://java.net/jira/browse/JPA_SPEC-63
Android -> http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=62192
A great burst of enthusiastic voting might help the powers that be realize that devs are really ready for a real Date/Time API. Because it's time.
