Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2235) Server doesnt support timestamps with timezone
Date Thu, 30 Aug 2007 16:12:30 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2235?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12523874

Ken Johanson commented on DERBY-2235:

I believe that until/if timezone storage is supported, the server should treat it as whatever
the default (timezone-less) string representaion of an iso8601. In otherwords it should store
the '2007-01-03 04:13:43.006' value, minus 8 hours, if a timezone-less string ordinarily defaults
to GMT. Or is a tz-less string defaults to the system's tz, i.e if the tz-less string defaults
to EDT and a PDT timezone is entered, the offset from EDT to PDT should be used to create
the value that EDT would use:

1) server runs in EDT (ie INSERT 2007-01-03 04:13:43 = 2007-01-03 09:13:43 GMT)
2) server recieves INSERT '2007-01-03 01:00:00.006.006 -0800', translates to 2007-01-03 04:00:00.006,
ie 2007-01-03 09:00:00.006.

It would be argued by some that if a TZ value is present but cannot be stored an error should
be reported, but other users would elect (given config option) to just have to auto-computed
to real time (without tz).

>    Affects Versions:
>            Reporter: Ken Johanson
>            Priority: Minor
> DML with datetime literals having timzone offset data (ISO-8601):
> update tbl set dt1 = '2007-01-03 04:13:43.006 -0800'
> Causes:
> SQLException: The syntax of the string representation of a datetime value is incorrect.
> Error: -1 SQLSTATE: 22007
> I believe that even if the storage does not (does it?) support timezone storage, the
input of a TZ could be normalized (offset applied) to the default TZ.
