Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-291) Null-safe comparison methods for finding most recent / least recent dates.
Date Tue, 31 Oct 2006 20:50:17 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-291?page=comments#action_12446052 ] 
            
Gary Gregory commented on LANG-291:
-----------------------------------

How about following the naming from Math.min() and Math.max():
public static Date min(Date date1, Date date2);
public static Date max(Date date1, Date date2);

Alternatively, when I read 'Returnes [sic] the least recent (oldest)", why not call the methods
oldest() and newest()
