JDBC meta data
Applies to ✅ Open Source Edition ✅ Express Edition ✅ Professional Edition ✅ Enterprise Edition
This is the default implementation of Database meta data, which is backed by JDBC's java.sql.DatabaseMetaData. If you configure your DSLContext with a JDBC Connection or DataSource, you can access its meta data like this:
create.meta() .getTables() .forEach(System.out::println);
The above may print the tables from our sample database.

Beware that by default, the entire catalog might be loaded to ensure referential integrity of all tables and their constraints. If you're only interested in a limited subset of your schema, you can use the various filter methods:
create.meta() .filterSchema(s -> s.getName().equals("PUBLIC")) .getTables() .forEach(System.out::println);
