Projection rowtype

Much like most dialects use only the first set operation subquery's column names and types for the resulting row type, so does jOOQ. This is particularly interesting when applying converters, including ad-hoc converters or converters attached to generated code.

Since jOOQ does not know which row is produced by which union subquery, it cannot disambiguate these rows in case the projection row type isn't exactly identical. As such, the ad-hoc converter in the following example is ignored:

Result<Record1<Integer>> result =
    // This has no effect
    select(AUTHOR.ID.convertFrom(i -> -i))

While this can lead to subtle bugs, it makes perfect sense, knowing that a Converter is always applied at the client side of the execution.
