Subject [jira] Created: (LANG-400) Add DateUtils methods to implement before and after time-insensitive
Date Thu, 10 Jan 2008 06:42:33 GMT
Add DateUtils methods to implement before and after time-insensitive
--------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: LANG-400
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-400
             Project: Commons Lang
          Issue Type: New Feature
    Affects Versions: 2.3
            Reporter: Paul Benedict
             Fix For: 2.4


The JDK contains Date.before() and Date.after() but no time-insensitive versions exist. I
am typically in the situation where TIMESTAMP columns are converted into Date instances and
I need to compare dates only for business rules.

I propose to complete DateUtils.isSameDay:
DateUtils.isBeforeDay
DateUtils.isAfterDay

My private implementations convert Date to Calendar, zero-out the time elements, and then
compare.

PS: I would also deprecate isSameXXX methods in 2.4 and rename it to isEqualXXX since sameness
usually implies instance equality, rather than object equality.
