I am afraid not. There is only one java.sql.Types.TIMESTAMP constant
(no DATETIME) and both DATETIME and TIMESTAMP data types in Mysql are
"compliant" with the JDBC Type java.sql.Types.TIMESTAMP only.
You will not get access to both MySQL types by a simple mapping
from java.sql.Types.
I reckon that MySQL was not designed with JDBC compatibility as a top

I am afraid there is no simple solution to the Schema types -> Database
types mapping problem. As written earlier, I do not have any heartblood
in this issue, I just thought it would make things easier and it is
to the javaType attribute where one can override the default java type.
