Hi All,

"nanoseconds" on P139 should be "milliseconds".

The text is, I believe, describing the default output precision of the Seconds value, which is three decimal points, not nine.

Cheers

Mike,
Confirmed and added to the errata. Thanks.

As an aside, I find it annoying that the constructor takes nanos but the output is millis!

Hi Jeanne

Ha - yeah - I almost raised another errata report for the same "mistake" on page 140...then I read the Java Docs and saw the constructors do indeed take nanos :-/

Cheers
Mike

It turns out this isn't actually an errata. It is really confusing and we are going to make it clearer. See this thread for details on what is happening.
