Im using Kettle 6.x, I have a java user defined class that is pulling in a Timestamp field:

Object MY_DATE = get(Fields.In, "MY_DATE").getTimestamp(r);

A method named "getTimestamp" is not declared in any enclosing class nor any supertype, nor through a static import

I tried to import a series of classes to correct such as java.util.Date but the error persists - cannot find the right class.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
