This subprotocol implements the communication protocol for the SQL Server 6.5.
The timestamp column in the SQL server is not a column that contains a time or date.
It contains a binary number (8 byte) that is unique in the database.
You can get bytes from a timestamp field that can be read with the methods get Bytes, get String or get Binary Stream.
To get a java timestamp from a SQL Server column you need to use a date/time column in the SQL Server database.
If you call get Object on a column that is a timestamp column in the SQL Server then you get a binary object.
If you call This conversion comes from the SQL Server and not from the driver.
** The database needs to employ a Compatibility Level of 70 or higher.
If you use data types this is the recommended subprotocol.
This protocol might be a little slower than inetdea7 if the SQL Server has no index problems.
This is the case because the character converting of Java is slower than the converting of the SQL Server (Java byte code versus native code).
No, you cannot get a java timestamp from a timestamp column of the SQL server.
