a date can be stored as a null in my table(oracle): java.sql.Timestamp nullTimestamp = null; ... ps.setDate(1,nullTimestamp); //will enter null into the database hope this helps Jamie p.s. - Why don't you just try it?? If it works, then you can do it, if it does not work, then you can't. I don't know what constraints, relationships etc are on your table so it is hard for me to speculate its capabilities to store null values.
