Subject [jira] [Created] (DRILL-5334) Questionable code in the TimeVector class
Date Wed, 08 Mar 2017 05:52:37 GMT
Paul Rogers created DRILL-5334:

             Summary: Questionable code in the TimeVector class
                 Key: DRILL-5334
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-5334
             Project: Apache Drill
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.9.0
            Reporter: Paul Rogers

The {{TimeVector}} class, which holds Time data, should hold a simple local time with no associated
date or time zone. (A local time cannot be converted to UTC without a date since the conversion
depends on when daylight savings is in effect.)

But, the implementation of {{TimeVector}} uses the following very questionable code:

    public DateTime getObject(int index) {
        org.joda.time.DateTime time = new org.joda.time.DateTime(get(index), org.joda.time.DateTimeZone.UTC);
        time = time.withZoneRetainFields(org.joda.time.DateTimeZone.getDefault());
        return time;

That is, we convert a date-less, local time into a Joda UTC DateTime object, then reset the
time zone to local time. This is abusing the Joda library and is the very kind of fun &
games that Joda was designed to prevent.

The conversion of a time into Joda should use the {{LocalTime}} class.

In fact, according to [Oracle|http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/articles/java/jf14-date-time-2125367.html],
the following is the mapping from ANSI SQL date/time types to Java 8 (and thus Joda) classes:

||ANSI SQL||Java SE 8
