Date d = new Date(longValue) would do it, but what form is this timestamp in? What type?

I have original array Data in UTC format:
if (message instanceof MarketDataSnapshot) {

            incomingQuote = (MarketDataSnapshot)message;
            symbol = incomingQuote.getInstrument().getSymbol();
            double bPx = incomingQuote.getBidOpen();
            double aPx = incomingQuote.getAskOpen();
            UTCTimestamp ts = incomingQuote.getOpenTimestamp();

            try {

                if ("EUR/USD".equalsIgnoreCase(symbol.trim())) {
                    
                    BorderControl.getInstance().borderControl(bidPx,
                                                              askPx);
                    bidPx[0] = bPx;
                    eurusd_bid = String.valueOf(bidPx[0]);
                    DCC.getInstance().setEURUSD_bid(eurusd_bid);
                    askPx[0] = aPx;
                    eurusd_ask = String.valueOf(askPx[0]);
                    DCC.getInstance().setEURUSD_ask(eurusd_ask);
                    avg[0] = (bidPx[0] + askPx[0])/2;
                    avg_ts[0] = ts;
                    ChartCommander.getInstance().chartEURUSD(avg, avg_ts, outY);
                }

Open in new window

I need to send it to OHLC, but there java.util.Date format and I have error message:
Cannot cast UTCTimestamp[] to java.util.Date[].
So, before sending I have to convert it to acceptable format.

Undocumented for me, so try something like

Date d = new Date(ts.getTime());

You can't to this site - they ban the contents as well as the archive extensions. Try mailing it to me (see profile)

you probable don't need to convert them at all, you can probably just copy them into new array. Simpler, and avoids wasting memory.
you only need to convert when going the other way, converting a date to a timestamp
