    Default JPA TIMESTAMP (MySQL)

    I have a TIMESTAMP Columns in my MySQL database. This is the relevant section of the entity class:

    @Basic(optional = false)
    @NotNull
    @Column(name = "created_date")
    @Temporal(TemporalType.TIMESTAMP)
    private Date createdDate;

    My problem is that it updates to a new TIMESTAMP automatically every time I persist anything to that row in the database. I am explicitly NOT updating that value but it updates itself. How do I prevent that from happening so it simply retains the original value entered?

    Make sure the column value is not automatically created. How did you create the table? Does the date field have a default value that specifies the current time?

    I created the table using workbench, I can't see anything that denotes that the value should be automatically created, what should I be looking for? With regards to specifying the current time the answer is no. I am simply creating a new Date() when the user is created and it seems to automatically add in the time.
