In order to build jOOQ (Open Source Edition) yourself, please download the sources from and use Maven to build jOOQ, preferably in Eclipse. The jOOQ Open Source Edition requires Java 8+ to compile and run. The commercial jOOQ Editions require Java 8+ or Java 6+ to compile and run, depending on the distribution.

Some useful hints to build jOOQ yourself:

  • Get the latest version of Git or EGit
  • Get the latest version of Maven or M2E
  • Check out the jOOQ sources from
  • Optionally, import Maven artefacts into an Eclipse workspace using the following command (see the maven-eclipse-plugin documentation for details):
    • mvn eclipse:eclipse
  • Build the jooq-parent artefact by using any of these commands:
    • mvn clean package
      create .jar files in ${}
    • mvn clean install
      install the .jar files in your local repository (e.g. ~/.m2)
    • mvn clean {goal} -Dmaven.test.skip=true
      don't run unit tests when building artefacts
