      Description

      External question sites indicate that users have difficulty converting between java.util.Date and LocalDate, and also between Instant and LocalDate/LocalTime. This user difficulty can be resolved with some additional methods.

      Currently, the following methods exist:

       ZonedDateTime.ofInstant(Instant, ZoneId);
       OffsetDateTime.ofInstant(Instant, ZoneId);
       LocalDateTime.ofInstant(Instant, ZoneId);
       OffsetTime.ofInstant(Instant, ZoneId);

      This enhancement proposes to add the same method to LocalDate and LocalTime. It can reasonably be argued this was a simple oversight in the original development.
