public final class DateTimeAtCreation extends DateTimeSyntax implements PrintJobAttribute
Class DateTimeAtCreation is a printing attribute class, a date-time attribute, that indicates the date and time at which the Print Job was created.

To construct a DateTimeAtCreation attribute from separate values of the year, month, day, hour, minute, and so on, use a {@link java.util.Calendar Calendar} object to construct a {@link java.util.Date Date} object, then use the {@link java.util.Date Date} object to construct the DateTimeAtCreation attribute. To convert a DateTimeAtCreation attribute to separate values of the year, month, day, hour, minute, and so on, create a {@link java.util.Calendar Calendar} object and set it to the {@link java.util.Date Date} from the DateTimeAtCreation attribute.

IPP Compatibility: The information needed to construct an IPP "date-time-at-creation" attribute can be obtained as described above. The category name returned by getName() gives the IPP attribute name.
