Currently, for the date/time related logical types, we are generating Joda date/time objects. Since we've moved to Java-8 (
AVRO-2043) it seems logical to also provide the possibility to generate java.time.* date/time objects instead of the Joda time variants.
I propose to make this is a switch in SpecificCompiler.java which will default to Joda (I think), but can be set to generate the Java 8 versions.
(I'm currently trying to run through the code to see if I can make it work.)
