Duplicate handling

When importing data, some data may already be present and needs to be updated. jOOQ supports a variety of UPSERT style statements. The ideal statement to be used for imports is MySQL's INSERT .. ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE statement, which can be emulated using standard SQL MERGE, or INSERT .. ON CONFLICT in PostgreSQL or SQLite.


      // Insert each row using INSERT .. ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE

      // Insert each row using INSERT .. ON DUPLICATE KEY IGNORE

      // Use ordinary INSERT statements, which will produce errors on duplicate keys
