I'm trying to insert a date/time into table. I read in a date/time string from a log file, convert to date and attemt to insert, using prepared statement. I cant get format "30/09/2004 4:19:58 PM" to appear in table, only date. I have tried using Timestamp, but then i still am unable to insert. I have a deadline for today with this issue. I appreciate any help
debug output ============ in logDate = Sun Sep 26 13:27:55 EDT 2004 in sql_date = 2004-09-26 13:27:55.0 LogParser::insertEventRow failed : RA-01830: date format picture ends before converting entire input string

Well, as Bear indicated, saying your problem is urgent is not likely to get you a better or faster response. Most people who can help will do so anyway whether it is urgent or not.
But anyway, one thing I spot is that you are using Oracle to_date function in your SQL, this function takes two 'Strings' as arguments, the 2nd one the date format you are using, and the 1st one a String representing the date in the format specified by the 2nd argument.
So, instead of
You want to use pstmt.setString(1, sql_date_string) where sql_date_string is a String representing date in 'dd/Mon/yyyy:hh24:mi:ss' format.
Another option would be to use a java.sql.Timestamp in a statement like "INSERT INTO EventLog (EVENT_DATE,EVENT_URL,DOWNLOAD_SIZE) VALUES (?,?,?)" , without the call to Oracle to_date function.
