Output target configuration

Applies to ✅ Open Source Edition   ✅ Express Edition   ✅ Professional Edition   ✅ Enterprise Edition

In the previous sections, we've seen the <target/> element which configures the location of your generated output. The following XML snippet illustrates some additional flags that can be specified in that section:

<configuration xmlns="http://www.jooq.org/xsd/jooq-codegen-3.13.0.xsd">
  ...
  <generator>
    ...
    <target>
      <packageName>[org.jooq.your.packagename]</packageName>
      <directory>[/path/to/your/dir]</directory>
      <encoding>UTF-8</encoding>
      <clean>true</clean>
    </target>
  </generator>
</configuration>
  • packageName: Specifies the root package name inside of which all generated code is located. This package is located inside of the <directory/>. The package name is part of the generator strategy and can be modified by a custom implementation, if so desired.
  • directory: Specifies the root directoy inside of which all generated code is located.
  • encoding: The encoding that should be used for generated classes.
  • clean: Whether the target package (<packageName/>) should be cleaned to contain only generated code after a generation run. Defaults to true.
