I am having a problem retrieving dates. I have a Java class in which I am retrieving dates from an Oracle database. When I call the Java class directly, I a getting the date correctly, but when I call the Java class from Tomcat, the time too is getting appended to the date as 00:00:00. The database entry contains only the date, not the time.
What is the data type of the column in oracle. If the data type is date the timestamp is included down to the second. It is a date formatting issue you get into at that time. If you are trying to display the date on the web try using a SimpleDateFormat object to translate the date to only display the date, The timestamp will still be there as part of the object.
