public class DateDt extends BaseDateTimeDt
Represents a FHIR date datatype. Valid precisions values for this type are:

Note on using Java Date objects: This type stores the date as a Java Date. Note that the Java Date has more precision (millisecond precision), and does not store a timezone. As such, it could potentially cause issues. For example, if a Date contains the number of milliseconds at midnight in a timezone across the date line from your location, it might refer to a different date than intended.

As such, it is recommended to use the Calendar or int,int,int constructors
