TO_TIMESTAMP

Applies to ✅ Open Source Edition   ✅ Express Edition   ✅ Professional Edition   ✅ Enterprise Edition

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.

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

The result being

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

Dialect support

This example using jOOQ:

toTimestamp("20200203153045", "YYYYMMDDHH24MISS")

Translates to the following dialect specific expressions:

-- DB2, H2, HSQLDB, ORACLE, POSTGRES, VERTICA
to_timestamp('20200203153045', 'YYYYMMDDHH24MISS')

-- ACCESS, ASE, AURORA_MYSQL, AURORA_POSTGRES, COCKROACHDB, DERBY, FIREBIRD, HANA, INFORMIX, INGRES, MARIADB, MEMSQL, MYSQL, 
-- REDSHIFT, SQLDATAWAREHOUSE, SQLITE, SQLSERVER, SYBASE, TERADATA
/* UNSUPPORTED */

(These are currently generated with jOOQ 3.15, see #10141)
