The ARRAY_ANY_MATCH function allows for checking if any of the array elements match a given predicate.

A few SQL dialects, including ClickHouse, DuckDB, and Trino have introduced higher order functions with a lambda syntax to help implement features like this one. jOOQ can map a Java lambda to a SQL lambda, and emulate the feature using standard SQL functionality (using UNNEST and ARRAY_AGG) if the function isn't available.
SELECT array_any_match(ARRAY[1, 2, 2, 3], e -> e > 2)
create.select(arrayAnyMatch(array(1, 2, 2, 3), e -> e.gt(2))).fetch();

The result would look like this:

| array_any_match |
| true            |

Dialect support

This example using jOOQ:

arrayAnyMatch(array(1, 2, 2, 3), e -> e.gt(2))

Translates to the following dialect specific expressions:

Aurora Postgres, CockroachDB, DuckDB, H2, HSQLDB, Postgres

  SELECT 1 one
  FROM UNNEST(ARRAY[1, 2, 2, 3]) t (e)
  WHERE e > 2


  e -> e > 2,
  ARRAY(1, 2, 2, 3)


  ARRAY[1, 2, 2, 3],
  e -> e > 2
