Jeff Levitt updated DERBY-234:

This patch adds the missing documentation to the three datatypes.  The information and examples
provided by Jack in this issue have been placed in the DATE, TIME, and TIMESTAMP files accordingly.

> The documentation for datatypes DATE, TIME, and TIMESTAMP is incomplete. The documentation
says that DATE, TIME, and TIMESTAMP accept any values accepted by the java.sql.Date, java.sql.Time,
and java.sql.Timestamp classes respectively. Derby accepts a number of string formats:
>   yyyy-mm-dd
>   mm/dd/yyyy
>   dd.mm.yyyy
>   hh:mm[:ss]
>   hh.mm[.ss]
>   hh[:mm] {AM | PM}
>   yyyy-mm-dd-hh[.mm[.ss[.nnnnnn]]]
>   yyyy-mm-dd hh[:mm[:ss[.nnnnnn]]]
> The year must always have 4 digits. Months, days, and hours may have one or two digits.
Minutes and seconds, if present, must have two digits. Nanoseconds, if present may have 1
to 6 digits.
> Derby also accepts strings in the locale specific datetime format, using the locale of
the database server. If there is an ambiguity the built in formats above take precedence.
