ADF 11g: Select date and time

Today, I had to enable the users to not only select a date, but also a time. I remember this being a lot of work in 10g, but in 11g, it's apparantly out of the box functionality.

Thanks to Shay Shmeltzer for providing a solution!

In short:
  • Make field in database of type TIMESTAMP
  • Make sure it's also a TIMESTAMP in your entity object
  • Provide a date format mask that includes hours and minutes
