Recently I needed to write a utility based on new java time package that was introduced in java 8. IMHO this package is very well designed and implemented, flexible and robust. One of the things that I needed to get is to be able to implement some functionality for duration or interval - period of time between two instants. In particular I needed to extract a number of milliseconds from instance of Duration class. In Joda package there is an Interval class that provides such functionality (method toDurationMillis()), but class Duration does not provide such method out of the box. So I wrote one. It is not a complicated method but might save some time to other fellow programmers out there. So here is the utility class. It has another method which is a wrapper for sleep() method that "swallows" the Interrupted exception. It might be useful as well.
