I am using a JDeveloper 902 with Oracle 9i.

I have a CMP Entity bean for a table with a DATE column. The entity bean implementation generated by JDeveloper creates a field of type string for the date.

Also manually creating the bean (via the GUI) does not give the Date as an option as a field type.

Does anybody use JDeveloper and what do people do with date columns?

I have tried a string of format 'yyyy-mm-dd' and 'yyyy-mm-dd 00:00:00.0' but both give the error ORA-01861: literal does not match format string.

Also assuming you are supposed to use dates as strings, then how would this code port to WebLogic? When I used JBuilder with weblogic in the past they have a field type Date for column type date.
