      Description

      Spark 2.4 and previous versions use a hybrid calendar - Julian + Gregorian in date/timestamp parsing, functions and expressions. The ticket aims to switch Spark on Proleptic Gregorian calendar, and use java.time classes introduced in Java 8 for timestamp/date manipulations. One of the purpose of switching on Proleptic Gregorian calendar is to conform to SQL standard which supposes such calendar.

      Release note:

      Spark 3.0 has switched on Proleptic Gregorian calendar in parsing, formatting, and converting dates and timestamps as well as in extracting sub-components like years, days and etc. It uses Java 8 API classes from the java.time packages that based on ISO chronology . Previous versions of Spark performed those operations by using the hybrid calendar (Julian + Gregorian). The changes might impact on the results for dates and timestamps before October 15, 1582 (Gregorian).
