java.util.Date and java.util.Calendar

The following are various small articles I have put together in response to questions I have answered concerning java.util.Dates, java.util.Calendars and java.text.DateFormat.

  • Is java.util.Date Deprecated?
  • Loosing Time on the Garden Path: Calculating the Difference Between Two Datetime Stamps. This article discusses the right way to calculate a difference in days between two millisecond values?
  • Are millisecond values guaranteed to be increasing?
  • Java dates, times and calendar from the FAQ. Since Peter Van Der Linden's Java FAQ seems to have long since died and is only available in a few place (including the copy at on the BURK pages at Bristol University), with only a few minor updates, I have replicated the Date &Calendar stuff which I put together on that FAQ so long ago.
