I followed the timestamp thread with much interest. It shows me again that
the developement of open source software (here the Jaybird JDBC driver) is
at a highest professional level.
I would prefer the oracle interpretation, too. And I think that is the right
But the name of the connection parameter "invert_time_zone" seems to me not
as a god name. May be "mysql_timezone_interpretaton" would be better because
it shows that with this parameter set the driver would behave like
Connector/J (the mysql jdbc driver).
