DB2 Getting the current database server timestamp

Sometimes, you may need to get the current stamp of the database server if you need for example to calculate the difference between the entry creation time and the current time.
In order to get the current database server timestamp in DB2, you can get it by querying the sysdummy1 table in the sysibm schema as follows:

SELECT CURRENT TIMESTAMP AS CURRENT_SERVER_TIME FROM sysibm.sysdummy1

java.lang.RuntimeException: Oh Snap! No server defined!

You may face this problem when you try to run the JsTestDriver (JSTD) tests. The reason behind this error is that JsTestDriver is unable to find the configuration file that declares the server directive. In order to solve this error, you need to specify the configuration file path using the --config parameter in the test running command as follows:

java -jar JsTestDriver.jar --config jsTestDriver.conf --tests all
