Why is it not returning the actual time?

Example:
In Oracle a date column holding: 28-09-2004 10:19:50

Connection connection = CachedConnectionFactory.getConnection();
Statement statement = connection.createStatement();
ResultSet resultSet = statement.executeQuery("select col1 from datetest"); //col1 is a date column
SimpleDateFormat simpledateformat = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss");

simpledateformat.format(date) returns "2004-09-28 00:00:00"


ResultSet resultSet = statement.executeQuery("select to_char(col1,'dd-mm-yyyy hh24:mi:ss') col1 from datetest");
return the string "28-09-2004 10:19:50"

Check if the date is saved as Timestamp in the database. If it is try to read the column as Timestamp and not as Date:

You need to use java.util.Date

Sorry

java.util.Date d = new java.util.Date(rs.getTimestamp("x").getTime());

No it is saved as a date. It is actually sysdate inserted into the column.

You might as well use:

Timestamp date = rs.getTimeStamp("columnname");
simpledateformat.format(date)

My program dynamically determines the column type from a not specified table.
...
resultSetMetaData.getColumnType(index) == Types.DATE

so instead I have to treat every date column unconditionally as timestamp? awkward...

Columns are usually able to be treated as Timestamp anyway. You could always do

Object column = rs.getObject(x);
if (columns instanceof Timestamp) {
   //
}
else if (column instanceof java.sql.Date) {
   //
}

Is there any type defined for TIMESTAMP in the table? If yes use that. But if it is a Timestamp datat type in the database then you should be using a Timestamp.
