Features requiring generated code

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

There are numerous features in jOOQ that require the use of generated code, which is why we always recommend using generated code by default. The main and only reason why you wouldn't use the code generator is because your schema is dynamic and known only at runtime.

However, even when you use the jOOQ code generator, there are occasions where you may need to bypass it by using plain SQL or Name based Field and Table types. In those cases, you will not benefit from the following features either (the features are effectively bypassed). Such features include:

Note that it is possible to use some of the above features even with plain SQL if you copy a org.jooq.DataType from generated code to your template, although, you will have to remember this step every time you create such a template.
