Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-194) getPrecision() on TIME and TIMESTAMP is zero

Myrna van Lunteren commented on DERBY-194:
------------------------------------------

When this get fixed, the PRECISION field of Metadata.getTypeInfo should also be changed to
match.

> Sun JDBC defines getPrecision() to return either the maximum length or maximum number
of digits of the column, or zero for failure (such as the precision is unknown). 
> http://docs.sun.com/source/816-6105-10/apicola.htm#211083
> The DATE field returns 10 characters on a getPrecision() call so why doesn't TIME and
TIMESTAMP give a precision length equal to the display length? Just seems inconsistent that
DATE would return a precision (as well as all other data types) and not TIME nor TIMESTAMP.
