Seth -

	We've found an issue with this over here, as well. I believe that
because each database implements the "now()"-type functions differently
(e.g. SQL Server uses "GetDate()"), Torque skips over it in an attempt to
remain generic. We found that if your column is a timestamp type in your XML
schema handed to the Torque-java-generator and you use the following string
(still in the XML schema): 'default=""', it will create a default of "new
Date()" in your java code. Sadly, this is the *client* date, not the
database date. If you absolutely must use the database date, you'll need to
probably change the generated code (or default it wherever you use it --
your choice).

Hope this helps.

Is there a way to specify in the schema to default a column to a
function call? I'm using Postgresql and there are certain timestamp
columns that I'd like to default to NOW(). Is there a way to accomplish
