Using setDate(column,Date) to insert date in sybase database  RSS feed

Hello Ranchers,

I am facing a problem in inserting date-time value in a column of type datetime in table of sybase database.

I am collecting datetime in mm/dd/yyyy hh:mi format in a string variable. Then i convert that to java.util.Date using SimpleDateFormat.

To insert this date to database i am using a CallableStatement call to execute the stored procedure in the database. For that, i am using [B]prepareCall[B] of the connection object.

Now i am writing

statement.setDate(columnIndex, new java.sql.Date(utilDate.getTime())

This code executes properly but in the database table, only date value is stored. The time value is not stored and it shows hh:mi as 00:00 only.

I need to store the time value also.

Is my code wrong in case?
Please advise.

Thanks in advance.

You need to call setTimeStamp() instead of setDate(). As you noticed, setDate() only sets the date. setTime() would only set the time and setTimeStamp() sets both.
