Class Time

      extended by java.sql.Time
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Cloneable, Comparable<Date>

public class Time
extends Date

A thin wrapper around the java.util.Date class that allows the JDBC API to identify this as an SQL TIME value. The Time class adds formatting and parsing operations to support the JDBC escape syntax for time values.

The date components should be set to the "zero epoch" value of January 1, 1970 and should not be accessed.

Constructor Detail

Time

@Deprecated
public Time(int hour,
                       int minute,
                       int second)
Deprecated. Use the constructor that takes a milliseconds value in place of this constructor

Constructs a Time object initialized with the given values for the hour, minute, and second. The driver sets the date components to January 1, 1970. Any method that attempts to access the date components of a Time object will throw a java.lang.IllegalArgumentException.

The result is undefined if a given argument is out of bounds.

Parameters:
hour - 0 to 23
minute - 0 to 59
second - 0 to 59

Time

public Time(long time)
Constructs a Time object using a milliseconds time value.

Parameters:
time - milliseconds since January 1, 1970, 00:00:00 GMT; a negative number is milliseconds before January 1, 1970, 00:00:00 GMT
Method Detail

setTime

public void setTime(long time)
Sets a Time object using a milliseconds time value.

Overrides:
setTime in class Date
Parameters:
time - milliseconds since January 1, 1970, 00:00:00 GMT; a negative number is milliseconds before January 1, 1970, 00:00:00 GMT

valueOf

public static Time valueOf(String s)
Converts a string in JDBC time escape format to a Time value.

Parameters:
s - time in format "hh:mm:ss"
Returns:
a corresponding Time object

toString

public String toString()
Formats a time in JDBC time escape format.

Overrides:
toString in class Date
Returns:
a String in hh:mm:ss format
See Also:
Date.toLocaleString(), Date.toGMTString()

getYear

@Deprecated
public int getYear()
Deprecated. 

This method is deprecated and should not be used because SQL TIME values do not have a year component.

Overrides:
getYear in class Date
Returns:
the year represented by this date, minus 1900.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if this method is invoked
See Also:
setYear(int)

getMonth

@Deprecated
public int getMonth()
Deprecated. 

This method is deprecated and should not be used because SQL TIME values do not have a month component.

Overrides:
getMonth in class Date
Returns:
the month represented by this date.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if this method is invoked
See Also:
setMonth(int)

getDay

@Deprecated
public int getDay()
Deprecated. 

This method is deprecated and should not be used because SQL TIME values do not have a day component.

Overrides:
getDay in class Date
Returns:
the day of the week represented by this date.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if this method is invoked
See Also:
Calendar

getDate

@Deprecated
public int getDate()
Deprecated. 

This method is deprecated and should not be used because SQL TIME values do not have a date component.

Overrides:
getDate in class Date
Returns:
the day of the month represented by this date.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if this method is invoked
See Also:
setDate(int)

setYear

@Deprecated
public void setYear(int i)
Deprecated. 

This method is deprecated and should not be used because SQL TIME values do not have a year component.

Overrides:

Parameters:
i - the year value.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if this method is invoked
See Also:
getYear()

setMonth

@Deprecated
public void setMonth(int i)
Deprecated. 

This method is deprecated and should not be used because SQL TIME values do not have a month component.

Overrides:
setMonth in class Date
Parameters:
i - the month value between 0-11.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if this method is invoked
See Also:
getMonth()

setDate

@Deprecated
public void setDate(int i)
Deprecated. 

This method is deprecated and should not be used because SQL TIME values do not have a date component.
