What's the simplest way to convert a java.sql.Date object to a java.util.Date while retaining the timestamp?
java.util.Date newDate = new Date(result.getDate("VALUEDATE").getTime());
The class java.sql.Date is designed to carry only a date without time, so the conversion result you see is correct for this type. You need to use a java.sql.Timestamp to get a full date with time.
java.util.Date newDate = result.getTimestamp("VALUEDATE");
