Interface Unwrapper

  • public interface Unwrapper
    An unwrapper SPI that can be used to override the default unwrapping algorithm.

    In some cases, jOOQ needs to get access to the native JDBC driver APIs in order to call vendor specific methods, such as Oracle's OracleConnection.createARRAY(). jOOQ doesn't expect clients to provide a native JDBC Connection through the ConnectionProvider SPI. Implementations may well provide jOOQ with some proxy that implements things like logging, thread-bound transactionality, connection pooling, etc.

    In order to access the native API, Wrapper.unwrap(Class) needs to be called, or in some cases, when third party libraries do not properly implement this contract, some specific methods are called reflectively, including:

    • org.springframework.jdbc.datasource.ConnectionProxy#getTargetConnection()
    • org.apache.commons.dbcp.DelegatingConnection#getDelegate()
    • org.jboss.jca.adapters.jdbc.WrappedConnection#getUnderlyingConnection()
    • ...

    Not all such third party libraries are "known" to jOOQ, so clients can implement their own unwrapper to support theirs.
