public interface Fields
A common super type for various types that can provide a set of fields, similar to a Table or a Record.

Ambiguities

Fields may or may not be qualified. Independently of qualification, dialects may produce duplicate fields by name in top level queries, e.g.:

 
 SELECT 1 AS id, 2 AS id, public.a.id
 FROM public.a
 
 

In the above unfortunate example, there are 3 ambiguous ID columns. Only one of them is qualified as A.ID, whereas the other two are unqualified aliases that cannot be distinguished by name, only by index. The behaviour of the various field access methods can be summarised as follows:

  • field(int) will return the expected field by index and isn't affected by this situation.
  • field(String) (case sensitive) works only with unqualified field names, and can thus not distinguish between any of the 3 fields. It will pick the first match.
  • field(Name) (case sensitive) works with unqualified or qualified field names. Depending on whether qualification is available in the jOOQ result (e.g. it might not be if you're using plain SQL templating, and the JDBC driver isn't able to produce the qualification), the qualification information will be used to disambiguate the result. Specifically:
    • If the argument Name is e.g. PUBLIC.A.ID (exact match) or X.A.ID, or A.ID (partial match), then those matches will be preferred over the unqualified match candidates
    • If the argument Name is ID, then the name continues to be ambiguous, and the first value will be returned.
  • field(Field) works like field(Name), except an additional Field identity check will be used to disambiguate field references. This is particularly useful when using generated code.

Whenever an ambiguity is encountered, a warning is logged to help debug the case. Future jOOQ versions might throw an exception upon ambiguity.

Unknown fields

Not all implementations actually know their fields. For example, when using plain SQL templates (DSL.field(String)) or tables constructed from identifiers (DSL.field(Name)), then the fields are unknown to jOOQ and empty lists or arrays are returned, or null is returned on single field returning methods.
