InstantDB: Dec 31, 2000 problem with IDB (versions 3.21 and 3.25)


oops - i first submitted this to the enhydra list by mistake. Please review
and comment
-----

I had (have) a problem that seems to be related to the current date. If I
change my system date (both Linux and Win2000) to dates other than Dec 31,
2000 the problem dissapears.

Given that this might occur on other dates that we don't know about, I
thought it was important to report.

The attached java code produces the following error on Dec. 31, 20000:
------------------
main java.sql.SQLException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException
 Error occured creating table: java.sql.SQLException:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException
------------------
When the DATE columns are removed from the table, the problem does not
occur. When the system date is changed to something other than Dec. 31,
2000, the problem does not occur. The "Error occured creating table:" is my
message, the exception is a JAVA exception.

Weird bug, but it should be easy to locate. I'd find it myself if I had the
source code for IDB (BTW, where does that stand?).
