Subject RE: Oracle default JDBC datatype for DATE
Date Tue, 28 Jan 2003 14:27:16 GMT
Hi Thomas!

This is not my problem.
I understand the JDBC Typemapping in OJB and of course I know of the FieldConversion feature
- I'm no OJB newbie  ;-)

My real problem is the Oracle drivers typemapping: Oracle database (!) type "DATE" to JDBC
Type "DATE" instead of JDBC Type "TIMESTAMP".
(Sorry if I did not state this clear enough)

My arising OJB problem is, that OJB determines the datatype of a column in a report (!) query
from the ResultSetMetaData (this is where this Oracle issue plays a role) and not from the
type definition in the XML repository file as it is done during a "normal" object query.

Hi Manfred,

The official JDBC typemapping is described here:

This page also shows how to use FieldConversions to tell OJB to perform the
correct type conversions for you.
