JIRA4: Custom DurationFormatter

Hi, Atlassian Community!

Could you, please, describe how custom DurationFormatter can be implemented and configured?

I need a duration formatter that will provide the ability to enter duration values like 1.5h(i.e with fractions) and will display durations in days and hours(the duration is less than 1d then duration will be displayed in hours, if more than 1d - in days). Our JIRA version is 4.0.2

JIRA uses JiraDurationUtils and its subclasses to format and parse durations. With access to the JIRA sources, you may be able to modify this code or inject your own DurationUtils instead. This would alter the overall duration handling in jira.

The other approach would be, that you write your own custom field, which handles your specific input. But this solution would not affect the standard functionality like estimated time or time tracking.
