Subject [jira] Reopened: (DERBY-234) Documentation of DateTime types is incomplete
Date Mon, 20 Nov 2006 03:25:02 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-234?page=all ]

Bryan Pendleton reopened DERBY-234:

I think the timestamp doc that was changed by this issue is not quite correct.

I think that the minutes and seconds portion of the timestamp string format are not optional;
only the nanoseconds portion can be omitted. I think this page needs to be updated to
indicate that minutes and seconds must be provided:

See this discussion on the derby-user list for some more discussion on the subject.

>                 Key: DERBY-234
>                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-234
>             Project: Derby
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Documentation
>    Affects Versions:
>            Reporter: Jack Klebanoff
>            Priority: Minor
>         Attachments: derby234.diff
> 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.
