I tried this but there is error:

            Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
            while (uprs.next())
            {              
            uprs.updateTime("datecol", cal.getTime());
            uprs.updateRow();        
            }

The first line you format the date in order to match the format in your database
second line just get the current time.
third line put into a String the formated date.



SimpleDateFormat formatter = new SimpleDateFormat ("yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss");
Date currentTime = c.getTime();
String dateString = formatter.format(currentTime);
 
//To insert only append the date String. For example:
statement.executeUpdate("INSERT INTO mesa_venta values(" + date + ")");

Still not working. Here is the code, no errors but the date is not added to the database.

 
 
import java.text.DateFormat;
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
import java.util.Calendar;
import java.util.Date;
 
import java.sql.Connection;
import java.sql.DriverManager;
import java.sql.Statement;
import java.sql.ResultSet;
 
public class DemoPreparedStatementSetDate
{
    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception
    {
        Connection con = null;
        try
        {
            // Here we load the MySQL database Driver class
            Class.forName("com.mysql.jdbc.Driver");
 
            // Define properties for connecting to database such as
            // database jdbc url, username and password
            String url = "jdbc:mysql://localhost/datedb";
            String username = "root";
            String password = "root";
 
 
            con = DriverManager.getConnection(url, username, password);
                        Statement statement = con.createStatement();
            
Statement stmt = con.createStatement(
ResultSet.TYPE_SCROLL_SENSITIVE, ResultSet.CONCUR_UPDATABLE);
ResultSet uprs = stmt.executeQuery("SELECT * FROM datetable");
          
Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
SimpleDateFormat formatter = new SimpleDateFormat ("yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss");
Date currentTime = cal.getTime();
String dateString = formatter.format(currentTime);
 
while (uprs.next())
            {
 
 
//To insert only append the date String. For example:
statement.executeUpdate("INSERT INTO date_column values(" + dateString + ")");
uprs.updateRow();
            }
 
        } 
          
        
        finally {
            if (con != null && !con.isClosed())
            {
                con.close();
            }
        }
    }
}

In my case I have a DateTime column so if you only have a date try this:


SimpleDateFormat formatter = new SimpleDateFormat ("yyyy-MM-dd");
