DATE field problem
2008-11-18 11:41:31.0

we have a problem with DATE fields in your new driver
DBF_JDBC30.jar (previous version worked fine):

java.sql.Date sqlDate = rs.getDate(1);

we get the sql.Date *with* hours representing the offset
of our local timezone from UTC. Reagrding to specs, this should
be all set to 0 (i.e. midnight in local timezone).
This could be handled by setting this to 0 after getting it
from the ResultSet, but saving is worse:

Using PreparedStatement stmt.setDate(1, sqlDate);

where sqlDate has hours, minutes, seconds set to 0, your
driver changes the date back one day and stores this in de database.

We are using DBF tables (XBase). Same code works fine with older versions
of your driver and e.g. MySQL driver.

Thanks for any help!

You should use
PreparedStatement stmt.setTimestamp(1, sqlDate);

>java.sql.Date sqlDate = rs.getDate(1);
If it's a timestamp, you should use

java.sql.Timestamp sqlDate = rs.getTimestamp(1);
PreparedStatement stmt.setTimestamp(1, sqlDate);


Object sqlDate = rs.getObject(1);
PreparedStatement stmt.setObject(1, sqlDate);

OK, thanks for your answer.

So you mean that stmt.setDate(1, sqlDate) does not work
(we have a DATE column without time information and
in previous version 4.1 and other databases this works)?

Or is stmt.setTimestamp() just a temporary workaround?

Thanks in advance.

It can work.

>(we have a DATE column without time information and
>in previous version 4.1 and other databases this works)?
If your date is a java.sql.Date type, of course you should use getDate(). If you meet issue, please email us a dbf sample, and a piece of your code. Then we will check why.

OK, mail to webmaster is on its way. Thanks.

Checked. All date field in your dbf sample is java.sql.Date type, not java.sql.Timestamp type. So that you will store only date value, no matter whether you're using g(s)etDate or g(s)etTimestamp.

If you wish to store time information, you need to "alter table modify AUSTRITT timestamp,..." at ALTER TABLE table_name alter_specification [,...]

I just want a consistent behaviour using DATE, not time
information. Please have a look at my first post:
It seems that the driver changes the date during save operation
one day back, at least in out timezone GMT+0100
Thanks in advance.

Recurred and supported. That's resulted by which you're using System.currentTimeMillis() to construct a date.
For instance,
11/20/2008 12:54:50 GMT+01:00
11/19/2008 11:54:50 GMT
in fact.
The latest package will detect it, and choose the suitable default time zone(local or GMT). It will be availabe after about 3 hours.

OK, tried it --> worked.
Many thanks for your quick reaction!
Very good support!
