      • getTimeZone

        public java.util.TimeZone getTimeZone()
      • clone

        public java.lang.Object clone()
        Creates a new AS400AbstractTime object that is identical to the current instance.
        Specified by:
        clone in interface AS400DataType
        Overrides:
        clone in class java.lang.Object
        Returns:
        The new object.
      • getByteLength

        public int getByteLength()
        Returns the byte length of the data type.
        Specified by:
        getByteLength in interface AS400DataType
        Returns:
        The number of bytes in the IBM i representation of the data type.
      • getDefaultValue

        public abstract java.lang.Object getDefaultValue()
        Returns a Java object representing the default value of the data type.
        Specified by:
        getDefaultValue in interface AS400DataType
        Returns:
        The default value of the data type.
      • getInstanceType

        public abstract int getInstanceType()
        Returns an integer constant representing the type of class that implements this interface. This is typically faster than using the instanceof operator, and may prove useful where code needs a primitive type for ease of calculation. Possible values for standard com.ibm.as400.access classes that implement this interface are provided as constants in this class. Note that any implementing class provided by a third party is not guaranteed to correctly return one of the pre-defined constants.
        Specified by:
        getInstanceType in interface AS400DataType
        Returns:
        The type of object implementing this interface.
      • getJavaType

        public abstract java.lang.Class getJavaType()
        Returns the Java class that corresponds with this data type.
        Specified by:
        getJavaType in interface AS400DataType
        Returns:
        The Java class that corresponds with this data type.
      • toBytes

        public byte[] toBytes(java.lang.Object javaValue)
        Converts the specified Java object to IBM i format. This method performs the same conversion as tobytes(javaValue,as400Value,0), except that as400Value is created dynamically and returned by this method.
        Specified by:
        toBytes in interface AS400DataType
        Parameters:
        javaValue - The object corresponding to the data type.
        Returns:
        The IBM i representation of the data type.
      • toBytes

        public int toBytes(java.lang.Object javaValue,
                  byte[] as400Value)
        Converts the specified Java object into IBM i format in the specified byte array. This method performs the same conversion as tobytes(javaValue,as400Value,0).
        Specified by:
        toBytes in interface AS400DataType
        Parameters:
        javaValue - The object corresponding to the data type.
        as400Value - The array to receive the data type in IBM i format. There must be enough space to hold the IBM i value.
        Returns:
        Eight (8), the number of bytes in the IBM i representation of the data type.
      • toBytes

        public int toBytes(java.lang.Object javaValue,
                  byte[] as400Value,

        Specified by:
        toBytes in interface AS400DataType
        Parameters:
        javaValue - The object corresponding to the data type.
        as400Value - The array to receive the data type in IBM i format. There must be enough space to hold the IBM i value.
        offset - The offset into the byte array for the start of the IBM i value. It must be greater than or equal to zero.
        Returns:
        Eight (8), the number of bytes in the IBM i representation of the data type.
      • toObject

        public java.lang.Object toObject(byte[] as400Value)
        Converts the specified IBM i data type to a Java object. This method performs the same conversion as toObject(as400Value,0).
        Specified by:
        toObject in interface AS400DataType
        Parameters:
        as400Value - The array containing the data type in IBM i format. The entire data type must be represented.
        Returns:
        A Java object corresponding to the data type.
      • toObject

        public abstract java.lang.Object toObject(byte[] as400Value,
                                int offset)
        Converts the specified IBM i data type to a Java object.
        Specified by:
        toObject in interface AS400DataType
        Parameters:
        as400Value - The array containing the data type in IBM i format. The entire data type must be represented.
        offset - The offset into the byte array for the start of the IBM i value. It must be greater than or equal to zero.
        Returns:
        A Java object corresponding to the data type.
      • toString

        public abstract java.lang.String toString(java.lang.Object javaValue)
