 Description   

Isn't a much better fit for this purpose than the older Java SE APIs.

Please state what you are proposing.

In JMS 2.0, an application requests a delivery delay by specifying a minimum time interval in milliseconds. It doesn't involve the use of "the older Java SE APIs".

More information is needed to be able to assess this request (and I don't want to start guessing at what you had in mind). So I'm marking this as "incomplete".

Will re-open if specific proposals are made.

Returning back to this, hopefully it's not too late...

As I had noted (and you did as well), this is a relatively minor issue as JMSProducer.setDeliveryDelay uses long as an argument type as opposed to the old temporal APIs. However, this feature can arguably be made more type safe/easy to use by allowing an argument of one of the newer Java SE 8 types such as Period or Duration: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/datetime/iso/overview.html. For one, that would make any date/time manipulation required before invoking setDeliveryDelay far easier. On the flip side the advantage of the current signature is that it is rather generic (basically down to the lowest common temporal denominator).

Does this help any?

Reopening in the light of more information, and tagging for discussion.

If we decide to add new methods to set/get delivery delay then we should add similar methods to set time to live.
