Date or Timestamp?  RSS feed

I have a table column that stores Date in default format 'dd-MON-yy'
I use JDBC to retrieve this column but I need it to display hour and minute and am/pm for my struts 2 app.

I am wondering if I should change the column to Timestamp instead of Date, does Timestamp record more info down to hour and minute compare to Date type?

Thanks in advance

Davie,
You are correct. Timestamp stores both date and time in a database. Date stores just date.
