ARRAY constructor

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

In order to construct an ad-hoc ARRAY type from within a SQL query, the ARRAY constructor can be used.

SELECT ARRAY[1, 2]
create.select(array(1, 2)).fetch();

The result would look like this:

+----------+
| array    |
+----------+
| [ 1, 2 ] |
+----------+
