hi all,
i am using mysql db.i have stored the date in mysql table using
now().it stored as : 2006-09-18 11:38:03

But when i retrieved that value using jdbc in my application it is adding zero at the end. like : 2006-09-18 11:38:03:0

can all guess why it is happening like this.

It is giving you the value to second precision. You can use SimpleDateFormat to format it without the milliseconds.
