Updating a oracle date type in a db?

Hi I'm currently trying to convert a java date type to a Oracle date type to update database information. I have created the code and it works perfect on SQL server 2000 (via an JDBC:ODBC connection) but encounters errors when I connect to an oracle 8 database. The code is as follows:

Date dtDate = new Date(System.currentTimeMillis ());

runNumber++;

strSQL = "insert into message (run_Number, message_Date) values (" + Long.toString (runNumber) +  " , '" + dtDate.toLocaleString() + "')";

I'm getting the following error message from oracle.:

java.sql.Exception: ORA-01830: date format picture ends before converting entire input string

What am I doing wrong..? Do I have to convert the value in a different form?

You are probably better off doing this as a Prepared statement like so:

  PreparedStatement s = connection.prepareStatement( "INSERT INTO MESSAGE ( run_number, message_date ) values ( ?, ? )" );

  s.setString( 1, "" + runNumber ) ;
  s.setDate( 2, dtDate ) ;
  s.executeQuery() ;

Does that work?

what are the data type you used in oracle?

Convert the date to specfic format ie(yyyymmdd hh:mi:ss)and use
to_date(strDate,'yyyymmdd hh:mi:ss') without any quotes outside

If the date field is actually of type String, then of course using my scheme you can do:

  s.setString( 2, dtDate.toLocaleString() ) ;

but toLocaleString has been deprecated since JDK 1.2, and you should use DateFormat.format instead...  (if you are using JDK 1.2 or above)

Good Luck,

Tim.
