Interface DeleteResultStep<R extends Record>

All Superinterfaces:
Attachable, AttachableQueryPart, Fields, Flow.Publisher<R>, Iterable<R>, Publisher<R>, org.reactivestreams.Publisher<R>, Query, QueryPart, ResultQuery<R>, Serializable, Statement

public interface DeleteResultStep<R extends Record> extends ResultQuery<R>
This type is used for the Delete's DSL API.


 DSLContext create = DSL.using(configuration);


This implemented differently for every dialect:

  • Firebird and Postgres have native support for UPDATE … RETURNING clauses
  • DB2 allows to execute SELECT … FROM FINAL TABLE (DELETE …)

Referencing XYZ*Step types directly from client code

It is usually not recommended to reference any XYZ*Step types directly from client code, or assign them to local variables. When writing dynamic SQL, creating a statement's components dynamically, and passing them to the DSL API statically is usually a better choice. See the manual's section about dynamic SQL for details:

Drawbacks of referencing the XYZ*Step types directly:

  • They're operating on mutable implementations (as of jOOQ 3.x)
  • They're less composable and not easy to get right when dynamic SQL gets complex
  • They're less readable
  • They might have binary incompatible changes between minor releases
