These are the crazies bunch of dates I've ever seen! The only one that
seems to make sense is Informix. What's significant about the other dates

dates into BC/BCE? And why did they pick 4712 BC? Are these "inside

For applications the use the popular database systems, dates are covered for
the next few centuries. (I think most problems will occur with mainframe
applications.) FYI, these are the date ranges for some popular databases.

Informix January 1, 1 A.D. to December 31, 9999
Ingres January 1, 1582 to December 31, 2382
Oracle January 1, 4712 B.C. to December 31, 4712
RDB November 17, 1858 to December 31, 9999
Sybase January 1, 1753 to December 31, 9999
