Subject: [PATCHES] [JDBC] timestamp parsing

Current timestamp parsing is quite complex and buggy
in my opinion, i.e. '2000-09-22 13:21:39+02' works (inserted
with now() function) but inserting '2000-09-22 13:21:39.11+02'::timestamp
(important is '.11+02') does not work (as I know). The problem
exists because postgresql _does_not_ show timestamp in unambiguous way.

After applying attached patch, JDBC sets datestyle to SQL and
uses 'MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss.SS zzzz' format to parse a timestamp.

However the question remains. What should be fixed? JDBC or postgresql?

PM: JDBC probably, but I haven't applied your patch (which you did send
previously), but I haven't yet checked everything out yet. Changing the
datestyle used by the driver from ISO to SQL may only affect getTimestamp(),
but because it's a global thing, I've got to make sure everything else

PM: Please be patient. I am getting through the patches, but like most
people here, I don't work on PostgreSQL full time. I have to fit it in with
my normal work (which technically doesn't include PostgreSQL), and as I'm
about to change jobs, things are going to get worse for a while, but as the
new job is primarily Java Development based (rather than NT4
rescue^H^H^H^H^H^Hadmin) I'll be able to begin work with Servlets & EJB
