Hi Nicolas,

I don't know if anyone got back to you on this one. You can always 
create your own function to do this. The java code would look something 
like this:

    public    static    String    dayOfWeek( java.sql.Date date )
        throws Exception
    {
        GregorianCalendar    calendar = new GregorianCalendar();
       
        calendar.setTime( date );

        int                    weekday = calendar.get( 
Calendar.DAY_OF_WEEK );

        switch( weekday )
        {
            case 1: return "Sunday";
            case 2: return "Monday";
            case 3: return "Tuesday";
            case 4: return "Wednesday";
            case 5: return "Thursday";
            case 6: return "Friday";
            case 7: return "Saturday";

            default: throw new SQLException( "Unknown weekday: " + 
weekday );
        }
    }

Then you could declare this as a function and use it as you described:

create function app.dayOfWeek
    ( dateValue date )
    returns varchar( 8 )
    parameter style java
    no sql
    language java
    external name 'z.dayOfWeek'
;
   

values app.dayOfWeek( date( '2005-10-03' ) );

Cheers,
-Rick
