This week I ran into the problem that I needed to provide a date format (attribute in FXML) to one of my controls. So I needed a way to convert a string to DateFormat, or even a comma separated list to a list of DateFormats. This I solved with a builder for that control. How would one solved that without builders? (What is the alternative to builders?)
