Hm, maybe we can avoid using the "real" time (via
System.currentTimeMillis) and use a "time provider" instead. By default
it obtails the system time. But for tests the returned time can be
modified according to the test needs. JodaTime for example has a
DateTimeUtils class with static accessors for getting and setting the
time. In other projects we used a TimeProvider interface with different
implementations for production and tests.

Kind Regards,
