Date Calendar GregorianCalendar

import java.util.Calendar;
import java.util.Date;
import java.util.GregorianCalendar;

 

If I extract a date from a node in Alfresco, I cannot cast directly to Calendar or GregorianCalendar. So I cast the Serializable return type from Alfresco to the Date class.
Date d = (java.util.Date) nodeService.getProperty(nr, INCENTROmodel.STARTDATE);

 

But java.util.Date is depricated since Java 1.1
The date.getTime() function still works.
It return the amount of ms since the beginning of time (aka 1 jan 1970)
long gt = d.getTime();

 

And the GregorianCalendar knows this. So
GregorianCalendar gc = new GregorianCalendar();
gc.setTimeInMillis(gt);

Post no. 3_million_and_1 about the java.util.Date / java.util.Calendar / java.util.GregorianCalendar
