URGENT!!! Date class in java.sql and java.util packages
posted 16 years ago
When in doubt go to the API and look up the Date class. Here is what the API says:
A thin wrapper around a millisecond value that allows JDBC to identify this as a SQL DATE. A milliseconds value represents the
number of milliseconds that have passed since January 1, 1970 00:00:00.000 GMT.
To conform with the definition of SQL DATE, the millisecond values wrapped by a java.sql.Date instance must be 'normalized' by setting the hours, minutes, seconds, and milliseconds to zero in the particular time zone with which the instance is associated.
