Hi,

I need to get today's date and insert into sql table.

Date d = new Date();
long today = now.getTime();

when I insert this value into sql table hour:min:sec is also inserted. please give me suggestions to get today's date in long value or in timestamp value without hr:min:sec attached to it.

thanks,

if you're dealing with sql and java 1.4+, it will probably be helpful for you to review the java.sql and javax.sql API's right off

e.g.


if you don't have these packages, you can use milliseconds or Calendar class to construct a SQL DATE in the desired format.

hth!

If you want to use TimeStamp

Example code
