Yes, the event has no duration.

Before https://bugs.openjdk.org/browse/JDK-8239508 we wrote timestamp and duration for all Java events. For exception events, we wrote duration = 0. Now we can differentiate between durational and instant events, which means bytecode can be generated to take the timestamp in the commit method.
