I want to get all entries from a table in db2 where a certain timestamp is not set. If I use a query "select something, myTimestamp from myTable", and I print myResultSet.getTimeStamp("myTimestamp"), the answer is null;

However, if I try to select all the empty timestamps with a preparedStatement:
preparedStatement = "select something from myTable where myTimestamp=?";
preparedStatement.setTimeStamp(1, null);
I do not get any results!
Does anybody know how can I find the empty timestamps?

You have to use IS NULL instead of = .
where timeStamp IS NULL

Although I've never tried it, you might want to try out the setNull() method of the PreparedStatement to see if that suits your needs.
