 * <p>A suite of utilities surrounding the use of the
 * {@link java.util.Calendar} and {@link java.util.Date} object.</p>
 * <p>DateUtils contains a lot of common methods considering manipulations
 * of Dates or Calendars. Some methods require some extra explanation.
 * The truncate and round methods could be considered the Math.floor(),
 * Math.ceil() or Math.round versions for dates
 * This way date-fields will be ignored in bottom-up order.
 * As a complement to these methods we've introduced some fragment-methods.
 * With these methods the Date-fields will be ignored in top-down order.
 * Since a date without a year is not a valid date, you have to decide in what
 * kind of date-field you want your result, for instance milliseconds or days.
