Date and Time

Using Java 8’s ZonedDateTime is the preferred way to handle all date and time issues. There is a helper class io.stallion.utils.DateUtils which provides some helper methods:


ZonedDateTime now = DateUtils.utcNow(); // Get milliseconds since the epoch Long epochMillis = DateUtils.mils(); // Get the time in the local time zone, based on `timeZoneId` setting in `stallion.toml` ZonedDateTime now = DateUtils.localNow(); // Format either a ZonedDateTime or milliseconds time stamp using the local // timezone and the passed in format DateUtils.formatLocalDate(dateOrTimeStamp, "YYYY-MM-dd-HHmm-ssSS");
