I have a Date insert that is formatted into an Oracle 9i database and it works.
But I had to make the Date variable a varchar2 in Oracle to get it to work:
java.sql.Timestamp myd = new java.sql.Timestamp(new java.util.Date().getTime()); String sub_date = new SimpleDateFormat("mm/dd/yy , h:mm a").format(myd); String query = "insert into dept(location, sub_date) values(?, ?)"; PreparedStatement pstmt = conn.prepareStatement(query); pstmt.setString(1, "Jersey"); pstmt.setString(2, sub_date); pstmt.executeUpdate();
I also tried pstmt.setDate(2, sub_date) with a Date data type in Oracle and I could get the date to insert but couldnt format it.
Please advise how I can get the Oracle Date datatype to work where I can also format it?
