DateFormatter is an InternationalFormatter that does its formatting by way of an instance of java.text.DateFormat.

The current serialization support is appropriate for short term storage or RMI between applications running the same version of Swing. As of 1.4, support for long term storage of all JavaBeans has been added to the java.beans package. Please see XMLEncoder.
