Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4628) CQL/JDBC: date vs. timestamp issues
Date Fri, 07 Sep 2012 15:16:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-4628?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13450699#comment-13450699

Sylvain Lebresne commented on CASSANDRA-4628:
---------------------------------------------

I guess it is true that JdbcDate could have been made to return java.sql.Types.TIMESTAMP rather
than DATE for its getJdbcType method.

> Cassandra's datatypes only have one Date/Time type named timestamp containing both date
and time. Calling the validator org.apache.cassandra.db.marshal.DateType might be OK in general
but can be confusing in the jdbc context where there is a distinction between date, time and
timestamp. In terms of jdbc there should be more datatypes for dates and times or the jdbc
driver should take one of the following options:
> - stick to timestamp
> - check if the date has a time part and distinguish by the data between date and timestamp
automatically
> - use distinct datatypes according to the jdbc spec, the types would need to be in cassandra
then too
> Now back to my actual problem:
> org.apache.cassandra.cql.jdbc.JdbcDate returns Types.DATE in getType(). Even if having
inserted a complete date with time (making it a timestamp) the ResultSetMetaData.getColumnType()
implementation still returns Types.DATE (source of this is in JdbcDate). If some other java
code (where i don't have access to) uses the metadata to get the type and then getDate() to
get the value the time is cut off the value and only the date is returned.
> But the ResultSet.getObject() implementation returns a complete java.util.Date including
the time.
