Subject [jira] Updated: (LANG-400) Add DateUtils methods to implement before and after time-insensitive
Date Thu, 10 Jan 2008 06:45:33 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-400?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Paul Benedict updated LANG-400:
-------------------------------

    Description: 
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.
