Parse a string value to a SQL TIMESTAMP type (represented by java.sql.Timestamp) using a vendor specific formatting pattern.

The pattern is not translated by jOOQ for vendor agnosticity and may need to be adapted depending on the SQL dialect you're using.

create.select(toTimestamp("20200203153045", "YYYYMMDDHH24MISS")).fetch();

The result being

| to_timestamp        |
| 2020-02-03 15:30:45 |
