truncation errors storing a Date in MySQL table

I have a 'timestamp' field in a mysql table.
when I attempt to insert a Date into the table. Like this:
Date currentTime = new Date(new java.util.Date().getTime()); queryString = "INSERT INTO example_table (timestamp) VALUES ('" + currentTime + "')" connection.exectuteUpdate(queryString )
I get the error: Data truncation: Incorrect datetime value: 'Thu Oct 01 11:08:57 BST 2009'
I've tried changing the timestamp field to DATETIME, TIMESTAMP and DATE but to no avail.
What am I doing wrong?

and set the time with setDateTime();
If you would print your sql statement before executing it, you would see why it fails. The value of currenTime is not what you expect.
