convert julia date to milliseconds


#1

How can I convert date in string format “2018-02-19” (y-m-d) to milliseconds so that I can use it for jcall setDate(long milliseconds)?

You can have a look here:
en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Introducing_Julia/Working_with_dates_and_times

In the section moments in time:

 julia> moment=now()
 2017-02-01T12:45:46.326
 
 julia> moment.instant
 Base.Dates.UTInstant{Base.Dates.Millisecond}(63621636346326 milliseconds)

 julia> Dates.value(moment)
 63621636346326
