Subject [jira] Commented: (TORQUE-11) Torque Type Timestamp should be mapped to datetime in Mysql
Date Tue, 14 Nov 2006 09:13:40 GMT

Thomas Fischer commented on TORQUE-11:

The problem is not a technical one, resolving this would need to add one line of code in the
class org.apache.torque.engine.platform.PlatformMysqlImpl in the method initialize():
setSchemaDomainMapping(new Domain(SchemaType.TIMESTAMP, "DATETIME"));

The problem is rather a compatibility issue. The Torque team has tried hard not to make any
hidden incompatible changes between 3.2 and the next release (which is probably called 3.3),
and I'd consider this change to be such an incompatibility (people might rely on the magic
behaviour of the timestamp). 
My personal idea would be to address this issue in 4.0-dev.  In the meantime, if you have
problems with this, you can get the sources, make the change above, and recompile the Torque

> Currently, the torque type timestamp is mapped to timestamp in mysql. However, timestamp
in mysql has a range only from 1970 to 2037, whereas datetime has a range from 1000 to 9999.
Both seem to have second precision. Thanks to Joerg Friedrich for suggesting this.
