Okay, let's try this...

The table def is roughly this...  It's archiving an entire days worth of
data into one row.  There are some other columns that are unimportant to
the current problem.

day    timestamp without time
time     timestamp with time zone []
value     real[]

I've tried a couple of things with the code, here's what I have now.  As
this works, the data result set generates correct values as it walks
throgh the set, but the times result set always gives the same value.

    public void addOneHistoryRow(ResultSet rs) throws SQLException {
        Array timeArray = rs.getArray("time");
        ResultSet times = timeArray.getResultSet();
        Array dataArray = rs.getArray("value");
        ResultSet data = dataArray.getResultSet();
        while ( {
            Number value = (Number) data.getObject(2);
            String timeString = times.getString(2);
            try {
                Timestamp time = new Timestamp(
                this.addOneDataPoint(time, value);
            } catch (ParseException e) {

There's actually another issue here, which is that I had to parse the
Timestamp by hand -- I was getting an error on plain getObject() for the
time column, but that's also minor.

I've tried it a few different ways -- I tried having times be generated
Timestamp[] times = (Timestamp[]) timeArray.getArray();

Which had the same issue -- every enery in the array had the same value.
