Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-400) Add DateUtils methods to implement before and after time-insensitive
Date Thu, 10 Jan 2008 17:46:34 GMT

Paul Benedict commented on LANG-400:
------------------------------------

I have no idea. I would rather stick to less libraries and use Commons Lang.

> 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 complement 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.
