Hi everyone,

Little weak in this area...

Im running a scheduler job using Java 1.5 and I pulling the record from the database, then getting the create timestamp of the record from the oracle database and then I want to add 2 hours to it and see if greater than the current time.  Basically Im delaying processing of a record until two hours have gone by.

Could some provide me a simple example of adding 2 hours to the timestamp and then checking against the current timestamp to see if it needs processed.

you can use some sql

here is some info
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/257324/oracle-how-to-add-minutes-to-a-timestamp

or use java


Just compute the minutes and the timestamp as milliseconds and add them.
long t=theOldTimeStamp.getTime();
long m=minutes*60*1000

TimeStamp theNewTimestamp=new TimeStamp (t+m);

Open in new window

the above one ignores nano secs, try this,

long time = ts.getTime() ;
time = time + ( 2 * 60 * 60 * 1000 ) ;
TimeStamp newTs = new TimeStamp( time ) ;
newTs.setNanos( ts.getNanos() ) ;

compute the hours as millisecs and assign as timestamp

(2*60*60*1000)+your current time

DateFormat formatter = new SimpleDateFormat("HH:mm:ss");  
 
try {  
    Date start = formatter.parse("09:11:59");  
    Long startMilli = start.getTime();          
    Long resultMilli = startMilli + 7200000; // adding 2 hrs in miliseconds      
    Date result = new Date(resultMilli);  
    System.out.println(formatter.format(result));    
} catch (ParseException ex) {  
    ex.printStackTrace();  
}
