save date in oracle db in format MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS AM/PM

how can i save a java.sql.Date/java.sql.Date object in db as in format MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS AM/PM?

When i tried saveToDb( new Date() ). The time part is being lost and only saving MM/DD/YYYY. How can i solve this problem.

sample code
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
import java.sql.Timestamp;
SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm:ss");
Timestamp myTime = new Timestamp(sdf.parse(myTimeString));
PreparedStatement pstmt = con.prepareStatement(mysql);
pstmt.setTimestamp(1, myTime);

Sorry if i did not elaborate my question but i am using hibernate myObject ) method to db, and myObject has to take a date field, something like:

Begning of my code:
Calendar startCal = request.getStartDate();
Date startDate = startCal.getTime();
 myObject.set ( assetStartDate ) ( myObject )

Note: This database column has Date dataType  and not TimeStamp.

java.sql.Timestamp is suitable for setting date with time in DB. May be you try to adjust your myObject a bit for that?

java.sql.Date or java.util.Date? If the former, time is not supported
