Object qualification

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

By default, jOOQ fully qualifies all objects with their catalog and schema names, if such qualification is made available by the code generator. For instance, the following SQL statement containing full qualification may be produced by jOOQ code with seemingly no qualification:

-- Full qualification on columns and tables
SELECT catalog.schema.table.column
FROM catalog.schema.table
DSL.using(configuration)
   .select(TABLE.COLUMN) // Column only qualified with table
   .from(TABLE)          // No qualification on table

While the jOOQ code is also implicitly fully qualified (see implied imports), it may not be desireable to use fully qualified object names in SQL. The renderCatalog and renderSchema settings are used for this.

Example configuration

new Settings()
  .withRenderCatalog(false)  // Defaults to true
  .withRenderSchema(false);  // Defaults to true

More sophisticated multitenancy approaches are available through the render mapping feature.
