Interface ClockProvider

  • public interface ClockProvider
    Contract for obtaining the Clock used as the reference for now when validating the @Future and @Past constraints.

    The default implementation will return the current system time. Plugging in custom implementations may be useful for instance in batch applications which need to run with a specific logical date, e.g. with yesterday's date when re-running a failed batch job execution.

    Implementations must be safe for access from several threads at the same time.
