Connector J does not covert time fields into JDBC timestamps.

The stack trace from the driver is;

SEVERE: Cannot convert value '09:00:36' from column 6(09:00:36 ) to TIMESTAMP.

SEVERE: Could not execute query
java.sql.SQLException: Cannot convert value '09:00:36' from column 6(09:00:36 ) to TIMESTAMP.

	at org.apache.commons.dbcp.DelegatingResultSet.getTimestamp(DelegatingResultSet.java:261)
	at net.sf.hibernate.type.TimestampType.get(TimestampType.java:24)

How to repeat:
Create a table with a time field and try to get the value of the field using JDBC.

Suggested fix:
In com.mysql.jdbc.ResultSet.java lines 3914 - 3925 the code assumes anything with 8 characters is a two digit date rather than a time field in the format

This is fixed for 3.0.16-ga and 3.1.5.

i have the same problem with v3.1.8. When trying v3.0.16ga it works. I suggest checking if it was really solved for 3.1

Are you sure you're really using 3.1.8 and you don't have some older version laying around in your CLASSPATH?

I just looked and the fix (and testcase) is definitely in 3.1.8, so this _should_ be fixed, and running the testcase here locally shows that it is.

Can you post the _full_ stacktrace from your machine?
