Invalid date in MYSQL causing problem in java application

Caused by: java.sql.SQLException: Cannot convert value ‘0000-00-00 00:00:00’ from column 42 to TIMESTAMP.
In hibernate data source mapping property please add the highlighted property
 By default these invalid date will be converted into null values when it comes to Java object.
 Alternate options:

  • exception (the default), which throws an SQLException with an SQLState of S1009.
  • convertToNull, which returns NULL instead of the date.
  • round, which rounds the date to the nearest closest value which is 0001-01-01.
