TO_LOCALDATE

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

Parse a string value to a SQL DATE type (represented by java.time.LocalDate) using a vendor specific formatting pattern.

The pattern is not translated by jOOQ for vendor agnosticity and may need to be adapted depending on the SQL dialect you're using.

This does the same as TO_DATE except that the client type representation uses JSR-310 types.

SELECT TO_DATE('20200203', 'YYYYMMDD');
create.select(toLocalDate("20200203", "YYYYMMDD")).fetch();

The result being

+------------+
| to_date    |
+------------+
| 2020-02-03 |
+------------+

Dialect support

This example using jOOQ:

toLocalDate("20200203", "YYYYMMDD")

Translates to the following dialect specific expressions:

-- H2, HSQLDB, ORACLE, POSTGRES, VERTICA
to_date('20200203', 'YYYYMMDD')

-- ACCESS, ASE, AURORA_MYSQL, AURORA_POSTGRES, COCKROACHDB, CUBRID, DB2, DERBY, FIREBIRD, HANA, INFORMIX, INGRES, MARIADB, 
-- MEMSQL, MYSQL, REDSHIFT, SQLDATAWAREHOUSE, SQLITE, SQLSERVER, SYBASE, TERADATA
/* UNSUPPORTED */

(These are currently generated with jOOQ 3.14, see #10141)
