Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-441) DateUtils Javadoc does not fully define round() behaviour
Date Mon, 11 May 2009 12:07:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-441?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12707988#action_12707988
] 

Valentin Rocher commented on LANG-441:
--------------------------------------

MONTH operation seems well documented for me : quoted from the Javadoc :

"For example, if you had the datetime of 28 Mar 2002
     * 13:45:01.231, if this was passed with HOUR, it would return
     * 28 Mar 2002 14:00:00.000. If this was passed with MONTH, it
     * would return 1 April 2002 0:00:00.000."

MONTH/YEAR add/remove a month or a year depending if we are after or before the middle of
the month/year. However, it seems like the middle is calculated assuming that each month has
31 days.

> The Javadoc for DateUtils.round() does not define the behavior fully.
> For example, what is the result of:
> round(MINUTE)  on 28 Mar 2002 13:10:12.499
> round(MINUTE)  on 28 Mar 2002 13:10:12.500
> round(MINUTE)  on 28 Mar 2002 13:10:12.501
> round(HOUR) on 28 Mar 2002 13:29:59.999
> round(HOUR) on 28 Mar 2002 13:30:00
> round(HOUR) on 28 Mar 2002 13:30:01
> How are MONTHs/YEARs rounded? Is the time taken into account?
> Does the rounding for February depend on whether there is a leap year?
> What does it mean to round to SEMI_MONTH?
