Mapping Oracle Date/Time to Java types.

We're using Oracle 9i (9.2.0.6) as our database, JDK 1.4.2, and Firestorm DAO to build our O/R mapping classes. The latest set of classes used java.sql.Date in queries to retrieve information from an Oracle DATE field, but I was forced to change it to use a java.sql.Timestamp instead. My understanding is Oracle DATE retains date and time info to the second, java.sql.Date to the millisecond, and java.sql.Timestamp (in theory) to the nanosecond. However, until I started using Timestamp, my DTOs all ended up with dates only, the time reset to midnight GMT. I'm confused. Why did that happen?

getDate() only stores the date values. getTime() stores the time values. getTimestamp() stores both.
