Overriding rename()

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

As of jOOQ 3.19.5, the rename() method is not declared in any super type yet, but it will be eventually, see #13937.

Occasionally, users will want to rename a table for the scope of a single query, rather than globally as with the runtime schema and table mapping feature. This can be done with Table.rename(Name):

// Overridden Book.rename() returns Book, not Table<Book>:
Book b = BOOK.rename("b");

// Type safe dereferencing of TableField:
Field<String> title = b.TITLE;

Unlike as(), this does not affect generated SQL other than assuming a table b of the same structure as BOOK exists in the schema.

If generating these overrides is not a desireable default, it can be deactivated explicitly globally using the following flag:

XML (standalone and maven)
Programmatic
Gradle (Kotlin)
Gradle (Groovy)
Gradle (third party)
<configuration>
  <generator>
    <database>
      <renameMethodOverrides>false</renameMethodOverrides>
    </database>
  </generator>
</configuration>

See the configuration XSD, standalone code generation, and maven code generation for more details.

new org.jooq.meta.jaxb.Configuration()
  .withGenerator(new Generator()
    .withDatabase(new Database()
      .withRenameMethodOverrides(false)
    )
  )

See the configuration XSD and programmatic code generation for more details.

import org.jooq.meta.jaxb.*


configuration {
  generator {
    database {
      isRenameMethodOverrides = false
    }
  }
}

See the configuration XSD and gradle code generation for more details.

    database {
      renameMethodOverrides = false
    }
  }
}
