System clock changes and Java timer utilities

Posts: n/a

If the system clock is changed backward or forward what is the expected
result on calls like Thread.wait, Thread.sleep and scheduled timers in Java

Does the underlying implementation use System.currentTimeMillis or similar
or does it count the clock ticks?

Is it hardware or OS dependent?
