Class Clock.Virtual

  • Enclosing class:

    public static class Clock.Virtual
    extends Clock
    A virtual clock that has no connection to the actual system time. Instead the clock maintains an internal counter that's incremented atomically whenever the current time is requested. This guarantees that the reported time signal is always strictly increasing.
