Power users might choose to re-implement large parts of the org.jooq.codegen.JavaGenerator class. If you only want to add some custom code sections, however, you can extend the JavaGenerator and override only parts of it.

An example for generating custom class footers

public class MyGenerator1 extends JavaGenerator {

    @Override
    protected void generateRecordClassFooter(TableDefinition table, JavaWriter out) {
        out.println();
        out.tab(1).println("public String toString() {");
        out.tab(2).println("return \"MyRecord[\" + valuesRow() + \"]\";");
        out.tab(1).println("}");
    }
}

The above example simply adds a class footer to generated records, in this case, overriding the default toString() implementation.

An example for generating custom class Javadoc

public class MyGenerator2 extends JavaGenerator {

    @Override
    protected void generateRecordClassJavadoc(TableDefinition table, JavaWriter out) {
        out.println("/**");
        out.println(" * This record belongs to table " + table.getOutputName() + ".");

        if (table.getComment() != null && !"".equals(table.getComment())) {
            out.println(" * <p>");
            out.println(" * Table comment: " + table.getComment());
        }

        out.println(" */");
    }
}

Any of the below methods can be overridden:

generateUDTClassJavadoc(UDTDefinition, JavaWriter)         // Callback for a UDT class Javadoc

generateUDTRecord(UDTDefinition)                           // Generates a UDT Record class
generateUDTRecordClassFooter(UDTDefinition, JavaWriter)    // Callback for a UDT Record class footer
generateUDTRecordClassJavadoc(UDTDefinition, JavaWriter)   // Callback for a UDT Record class Javadoc

When you override any of the above, do note that according to jOOQ's understanding of semantic versioning, incompatible changes may be introduced between minor releases, even if this should be the exception.
