Interface GDurationSpecification

  • All Known Implementing Classes:
    GDuration, GDurationBuilder

    public interface GDurationSpecification
    Represents an XML Schema-compatible duration.

    Both the immutable GDuration and the mutable GDurationBuilder are GDurationSpecifications. Use this interface where you want to allow callers to pass any implementation of a GDuration.
