As previously mentioned in the manual's section about arithmetic expressions, jOOQ does not implement operator precedence. All operators are evaluated from left to right, as expected in an object-oriented API. This is important to understand when combining boolean operators, such as AND, OR, and NOT. The following expressions are equivalent:

   A.and(B) .or(C) .and(D) .or(E)
(((A.and(B)).or(C)).and(D)).or(E)

In SQL, the two expressions wouldn't be the same, as SQL natively knows operator precedence.

   A AND B  OR C  AND D  OR E -- Precedence is applied
(((A AND B) OR C) AND D) OR E -- Precedence is overridden
