> Cast date  to timestamp results in "ERROR 42846: Cannot convert types 'DATE' to 'TIMESTAMP'.",
> e.g. in ij:
> select cast(cast ('2006-01-01' as date) as timestamp) from sys.sysschemas;
> or
> select cast (current_date as timestamp) from bradi_dat.lpaip01;
> The similar issue exists for time ("ERROR 42846: Cannot convert types 'TIME' to 'TIMESTAMP'.",
> Documentation clearly states that these conversions are allowed, see table 1 in a description
of CAST function in the Derby Reference Manual and comment about "Conversion of date/time
values" below that table (see below as well).
> Conversions of date/time values
> A date/time value can always be converted to and from a TIMESTAMP. If a DATE is
> converted to a TIMESTAMP, the TIME component of the resulting TIMESTAMP is always
> 00:00:00. If a TIME data value is converted to a TIMESTAMP, the DATE component is
> set to the value of CURRENT_DATE at the time the CAST is executed. If a TIMESTAMP
> is converted to a DATE, the TIME component is silently truncated. If a TIMESTAMP is
> converted to a TIME, the DATE component is silently truncated.
