ORM and Dates? You probably want timestamp

· Java Zone ·
Free Resource

Data types for dates and times are slightly different across databases which often makes life difficult for us developers. ColdFusion ORM makes this pretty simple:

  • For a date with time use ormtype="timestamp"
  • Just a date use ormtype="date"

There are no other options!

Full example with the property tag:

property name="aFullDateWithTime" ormtype="timestamp";
property name="justADate" ormtype="date";
