When inserting a record from my jsp page into Sybase my date is displayed as Wed Dec 31 16:00:00 PST 1969. The date field is blank on my jsp page but the database requires a value on insert. I am using the pPreparedStatement ps.setNull(1,java.sql.Types.Date) I really want the date to be null in the database. How can I get past this value being displayed in the database?
Thanks.

If the database table is set up not to accept null values for that particular column then you'll have to find some other way around it (or have the schema of the DB changed). Maybe insert a value that you know wont be entered in normal use to represent null ?

Thanks Dave. I'll go for inserting a value that can't be used for normal business.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
