Want to show the TimeStamp on the form, but needs to save it back later

When a complaint form shows up, I'd like to show the timestamp, do I get this from
If from Java, I need to update this value and set the field type to DateTime
If from MariaDB, I need a stored procedure to generate a TimeStamp and display it on the form and save it back later.
Both seems very inlogical, what is the proper way of doing this?

In Java, "new
()" creates the current date/time. You can then call stmt.setDate(1, new
()) to insert it in your database table.
I'm not familiar with stored procedures in MariaDB, but I'm sure it is possible. "now()" is often a database way of getting the current time.
