Steps to keep java6 and java8.

  1. Create two files in /usr/bin/ as java6 and java8
  2. Extract JAVA6 and JAVA8 to Linux file system. Suppose directory locations are /usr/java6/ and /usr/java8/
  3. Create Soft links for java6 and java8 using the following commands as root.

ln -s /usr/java8/jdk1.6.0_10/bin /usr/bin/java6

ln -s /usr/java8/jdk1.8.0_12/bin /usr/bin/java8

Now check versions using following commands in terminal.

Timestamp format in MySQL

This inbuilt MySQL command can be used to cast timestamp values as required.

SELECT DATE_FORMAT('field_name', '%Y-%m-%d %H:%i:%s') FROM 'table_name'

Above SQL will format timestamp in "YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS" format. If you require only date you can format timestamp as following SQL.

SELECT DATE_FORMAT('field_name', '%Y-%m-%d') FROM 'table_name'

Add number of days to timestamp in MySQL

Following DATE_ADD('field_name', INTERVAL) can be used to increase the number of days in the 'field_name' in MySQL databases. 


SELECT DATE_ADD('field_name', INTERVAL 2 DAY)FROM 'table_name';

Update SQL

UPDATE 'table_name'
SET field_name= DATE_ADD('field_name' , INTERVAL 2 DAY)
WHERE 'id' = 1;
