------------------------------------

             Summary: The Reference Manual should state that the year, month, and day components
of a timestamp must be positive integers.
                 Key: DERBY-6458
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-6458
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions: 10.11.0.0
            Reporter: Rick Hillegas


There is no year 0, month 0, or day 0 in the notation scheme used by Derby timestamps. We
should state this in the Reference Guide section titled "TIMESTAMP data type". The following
script shows this:

{noformat}
connect 'jdbc:derby:memory:db;create=true';

create table t( a timestamp );

-- fails because year, month, and day must be positive integers
insert into t values ( '0000-00-00 00:00:00' );
insert into t values ( '0001-00-00 00:00:00' );
insert into t values ( '0001-01-00 00:00:00' );

-- succeeds
insert into t values ( '0001-01-01 00:00:00' );

select * from t;
{noformat}
