ObjectLabKit 1.1.0 released - Date Calculators for Business and Finance

We are pleased to announce the ObjectLab Kit 1.1.0 release!

Changes in this version include:

New Features:

  • Changed JODA dependency to 1.5
  • Feature Requests item #1832345, make the Tenor Serializable Fixes 1832345. Thanks to Kieron Wilkinson.
  • Added 2 methods on factory to check if a calendar is registered.
  • Added method calculateTenorDates with/without a spot lag to enable calculation of a series of Tenor dates without changing the current business date in the calculator.
  • Added method moveByTenor without a spot lag to allow tenor calculation based on the CURRENT date and not the spot lag.
  • Valid Range via HolidayCalendar. HolidayCalendar should replace the simple Set of dates for holidays. A HolidayCalendar MAY contain an early and late boundary, if the calculation break a boundary, an exception is thrown, if there are no boundaries no exception would be thrown. This would ensure that calculations are not going outside the valid set of holidays. Fixes 1575498. Thanks to Paul Hill.
  • Added a standard Tenor 2D. Fixes 1601540. Thanks to Anthony Whitford.
  • Added new handler type ForwardUnlessNegative: a handler that acts like a Forward handler if the increment is positive otherwise acts like a Backward handler.

Fixed bugs:

  • fix NPE issue if the calendar name is null.
  • Deprecated ACT/UST and END/365 Day Count Conventions, which weren't very common. Also added a link to some documentation.
  • The calculation of Spot date should take into account holidays BETWEEN now and spot (aka moveByBusinessDay). Thanks to David Owen.
  • Spelling mistake in the code, sorry for breaking your code with this release. Fixes 1601542. Thanks to Anthony Whitford.
