When I write a Date() object to my Mysql database, I get the date correct but not the exact time, I always get f.e 2008-07-05 00:00:00 or 2008-08-22 00:00:00 How can you make sure to get the exact hour,minute and second?

You could review the type of the column to see if it is the correct type to hold a timestamp. Or you could review the code that inserts into that table to see if it's inserting a timestamp correctly.
Post more information if those two hints don't get you anywhere.

There are three date/time types in
- Date stores only the date part
- Time stores only the time part
- Timestamp stores both
So switch to Timestamp (if your backing field allows it).
