Groovy Jackson Deserializer to convert a .NET style JSON dateTime to a Java LocalDateTime object
class JsonDotNetLocalDateTimeDeserializer extends JsonDeserializer<LocalDateTime> {
LocalDateTime deserialize(JsonParser parser, DeserializationContext ctxt) {
* Returns a Java LocalDateTime when given a .Net Date String
* /Date(1535491858840-0500)/
static LocalDateTime convertDotNetDateToJava(String dotNetDate) {
// Strip the prefix and suffix to just 1535491858840-0500
String epochAndOffset = dotNetDate[6..-3]
// 1535491858840
String epoch = epochAndOffset[0..-6]
// -0500 Note, keep the negative/positive indicator
String offset = epochAndOffset[-5..-1]
ZoneId zoneId = ZoneId.of("UTC${offset}")
LocalDateTime.ofInstant(Instant.ofEpochMilli(epoch.toLong()), zoneId)
