Christian Kleinewaechter commented on LANG-1403:

I agree that the overloaded methods with Object parameter provoke errors while 
giving very little value. Maybe deprecation could be an option?

> DateUtils.truncate(Object date, int field) breaks Java type safety.

>                 Key: LANG-1403
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-1403
>             Project: Commons Lang
>          Issue Type: Wish
>    Affects Versions: 3.7
>            Reporter: Christian
>            Priority: Minor
> The DateUtils.truncate have three types of possible date input. 
> Calendar, Date, and Object. 
> The method which accept object as input is not necessary and will break the 
> type safety idea of java itself, so a wrong object will cause an runtime 
> exception and can't be found at compile time. 
> Solution:
> remove DateUtils.truncate(Object, int) method.
