Both the JDBC escape format
     {ts 'yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss'}
and the Derby builtin
     timestamp('yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss')
is conformant with ISO-8601

The escape format is conformant with the JDBC spec
The builtin is nearly conformant with the SQL standard 
(it should have been 
     timestamp 'yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss'

Any other date/time syntax will need to be converted by some means. 

Note however that there also are the classes
which may be used to insert dates/times into Derby
