Interface Clock

All Superinterfaces:
All Known Implementing Classes:

@ThreadSafe public interface Clock extends Serializable
A clock that tells the current time in milliseconds or nanoseconds.

Clocks are technically serializable because they are either a stateless wrapper around the system clock, or for testing, are just a wrapper around a DateTime. This means that if you serialize a clock and deserialize it elsewhere, you won't necessarily get the same time or time zone -- what you will get is a functioning clock.
