Are there Derby built-in functions which can allow me to extract current date/time as integers as:

Time HHmmss: 103152

Date yyyyMMdd:  20111108


I could get as far as:


                    cast(current_time as VARCHAR(8)),

                    cast(current_date as VARCHAR(10)),


but I was unable to find a function similar to str_replace in Sybase to remove “:” and “-“


Thank you,
