Hi, I want to insert an automatic timestamp(consisting of date & time) in my table using JDBC. I am writing servlets to poulate my tables. Could anybody provide a code snippet to include in my servlets. Please help as I am confused between java.util.Date and java.sql.Date. I don't know how to use them as I couldn't find an example anywhere. Thanks in advance.
If you have a Date column in your database table then construct the query as String stmt = "insert in to my_table " + " values(?, ?, ... , SYSDATE)"; ... ... If you want to append the time stamp to some VARCHAR2 column, then obtain a String using java.util.Date and insert the column as a String. Hope this helps. Napa
