Named table columns

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

When no org.jooq.Table instance is available to dereference a column from, the column expression can still be constructed on the fly, dynamically using a Name reference, and optionally a org.jooq.DataType reference:

// Get fields from AUTHOR dynamically, without type safety:
Field<?> id = field(name("AUTHOR", "ID"));
Field<String> firstName = field(name("AUTHOR", "FIRST_NAME"), INTEGER);

Note that by default, these names are quoted (among other reasons to prevent SQL injection), and thus case sensitive. For more details, please refer to the section about names and identifiers.
