difference between java.sql.time and java.sql.timestamp in java

I have a DB table, with a column of type Time.
I'm wondering in the JDBC, should I use java.sql.Time or java.sql.Timestamp to save this column value?

Which one is better? Thanks.

Depends on what you want to save. If just time, java.sql.Time. If date and time, TimeStamp.

The database time type implies just time, but the exact meaning could vary based on the database.
