Detailed Description

This class parses and generates time values used in HTTP.

The HTTP protocol have historically allowed 3 different date/time formats (see https://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec3.html). These are:

  • Sun, 06 Nov 1994 08:49:37 GMT
  • Sunday, 06-Nov-94 08:49:37 GMT
  • Sun Nov 6 08:49:37 1994

The first format is preferred but implementations must also support remaining two obsolete formats for compatibility. This class implements parsers and generators for all three formats. It uses boost::posix_time to represent time and date. It uses boost::date_time::time_facet and boost::date_time::time_input_facet to generate and parse the timestamps.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ HttpDateTime() [1/2]

isc::http::HttpDateTime::HttpDateTime ( )

Default constructor.

Sets current universal time as time value. Time resolution is to seconds (i.e no fractional seconds).

Definition at line 21 of file date_time.cc.

Referenced by fromAsctime(), fromRfc1123(), and fromRfc850().

◆ HttpDateTime() [2/2]

isc::http::HttpDateTime::HttpDateTime ( const boost::posix_time::ptime &  t)
explicit

Construct from boost::posix_time::ptime object.

Parameters
ttime value to be set.

Definition at line 25 of file date_time.cc.

Member Function Documentation

◆ asctimeFormat()

std::string isc::http::HttpDateTime::asctimeFormat ( ) const

Returns time value formatted as output of ANSI C's asctime().

Returns
A string containing time value formatted as Sun Nov 6 08:49:37 1994.

Definition at line 40 of file date_time.cc.

◆ fromAny()

HttpDateTime isc::http::HttpDateTime::fromAny ( const std::string &  time_string)
static

Creates an instance from a string containing time value formatted in one of the supported formats.

This method will detect the format of the time value and parse it. It tries parsing the value in the following order:

  • a format specified in RFC 1123,
  • a format specified in RFC 850,
  • a format of asctime output.
Parameters
time_stringInput string holding formatted time value.
Returns
Instance of HttpDateTime.
Exceptions
HttpTimeConversionErrorif provided value doesn't match any of the supported formats.

◆ fromAsctime()

HttpDateTime isc::http::HttpDateTime::fromAsctime ( const std::string &  time_string)
static

Creates an instance from a string containing time value formatted as output from asctime() function.

Parameters
time_stringInput string holding formatted time value.
Returns
Instance of HttpDateTime.
