Version 3.16.0 - January 5, 2022

This release tackles two long standing and complex feature requests that users have asked us to offer for a long time: a public API for manipulating jOOQ's query object model (QOM), and spatial support.

New Query Object Model (QOM)

Every jOOQ query is modeled as an expression tree constructed via our intuitive DSL. For some use-cases there exist historic model API versions (e.g. SelectQuery), but those models aren't readable or transformable. We're now starting to offer most of our expression tree model as a public API for users to consume and manipulate. Every expression tree element has a corresponding type in org.jooq.impl.QOM. Every type provides access to its components using "$" prefixed method names, e.g.:

// Create an expression using the DSL API:
Field<String> field = substring(BOOK.TITLE, 2, 4);
// Access the expression's internals using the model API
if (field instanceof QOM.Substring substring) {
    Field<String> string = substring.$string();
    Field<? extends Number> startingPosition = substring.$startingPosition();
    Field<? extends Number> length = substring.$length();

The new API is experimental and might change in the next minor release.

Licensed power users will get auxiliary APIs to traverse and transform the expression tree, e.g. traversal:

// Contains 7 query parts
long count2 = BOOK.ID.eq(1).or(BOOK.ID.eq(2))

Or replacement:

// Contains redundant operators
Condition c = not(not(BOOK.ID.eq(1)));
System.out.println(c.$replace(q ->
    q instanceof QOM.Not n1 && n1.$arg1() instanceof QOM.Not n2
        ? n2.$arg1()
        : q

The above prints the following, having removed the redundant NOT operators:

"BOOK"."ID" = 1

This new API is very powerful for even more sophisticated dynamic SQL use-cases, such as:

For more info, see:

Spatial support

A long awaited feature that starts shipping to our commercially licensed customers is spatial support. Many dialects support the ISO/IEC 13249-3:2016 SQL standard extension, and finally, so do we.

jOOQ introduces new auxiliary data types for GEOMETRY and GEOGRAPHY data to use as standardised bind variables, containing WKB or WKT data, as well as a variety of out of the box functions and predicates.

Future versions will add more support for other functions and dialects.

New dialect and versions

Another new officially supported SQL dialect has been added to all jOOQ editions including the jOOQ Open Source Edition: YugabyteDB. This was a sponsored integration, thank you very much Yugabyte!

Other dialects have upgraded versions, meaning:

The versions are:

Computed and readonly columns including ROWID

A lot of dialects support computed columns ("generated" columns), and we now support those as well in jOOQ. For most use-cases, this does not affect jOOQ usage, but especially when writing CRUD code, the new readonly column feature can be very helpful to avoid having to exclude computed columns manually from the CRUD operation.

This also includes a new, improved ROWID support, where users can choose to work with a synthetic ROWID column instead of the primary key, when performing CRUD operations.

All of these features are available in the commercial jOOQ editions.

Jakarta EE

We've moved on from Java EE to Jakarta EE dependencies. This change is currently backwards incompatible because:

The following Jakarta EE modules are affected:

Various improvements

As with every minor release, a lot of smaller improvements have been implemented. Some highlights include:

Version 3.15.0 - July 6, 2021


What a lot of users have been waiting for: jOOQ 3.15 is reactive, thanks to the new native R2DBC integration. Recent versions already implemented the reactive streams Publisher SPI, but now we're not cheating anymore. We're not longer blocking. Just wrap your R2DBC ConnectionFactory configured jOOQ query in a Flux (or any reactive streams API of your choice), and see what happens.


Both blocking (via JDBC) and non-blocking (via R2DBC) can work side-by-side, allowing users to quickly a query between the two execution models without any changes to the query building logic.

Projecting ROW types, ARRAY of ROW Types, and MULTISETS

After having implemented standard SQL/XML and SQL/JSON support in jOOQ 3.14, another major milestone in taking SQL to the next level is now available as an experimental feature: Nesting collections using the standard SQL MULTISET operator.

The operator is currently emulated using SQL/XML or SQL/JSON. The resulting documents are parsed again when fetching them from JDBC. Future versions will also provide native support (Informix, Oracle), and emulations using ARRAY (various dialects, including PostgreSQL).

Imagine this query against the Sakila database (

var result =

You're really going to love Java 10's var keyword for these purposes. What's the type of result? Exactly:

Result<Record3<String, Result<Record2<String, String>>, Result<Record1<String>>>>

It contains:

|title                      |actors                                            |films          |
|ACE GOLDFINGER             |[(BOB, FAWCETT), (MINNIE, ZELLWEGER), (SEAN, GU...|[(Horror)]     |
|ADAPTATION HOLES           |[(NICK, WAHLBERG), (BOB, FAWCETT), (CAMERON, ST...|[(Documentary)]|

Two collections were nested in a single query without producing any unwanted cartesian products and duplication of data. And stay tuned, we've added more goodies! See this article on how to map the above structural type to your nominal types (e.g. Java 16 records) in a type safe way, without reflection!

More info here:

New Dialects

We've added support for 5 (!) new SQLDialect's. That's unprecedented for any previous minor release. The new dialects are:

Yes, there's an experimental "JAVA" dialect. It's mostly useful if you want to translate your native SQL queries to jOOQ using, and it cannot be executed. In the near future, we might add SCALA and KOTLIN as well, depending on demand.

BigQuery and Snowflake were long overdue by popular vote. The expedited EXASOL support has been sponsored by a customer, which is a great reminder that this is always an option. You need something more quickly? We can make it happen, even if the feature isn't very popular on the roadmap.

Many other dialects have been brought up to date, including REDSHIFT, HANA, VERTICA, and two have been deprecated: INGRES and ORACLE10G, as these grow less and less popular.

Drop Java 6/7 support for Enterprise Edition, require Java 11 in OSS Edition

We're cleaning up our support for old dependencies and features. Starting with jOOQ 3.12, we offered Java 6 and 7 support only to jOOQ Enterprise Edition customers. With jOOQ 3.15, this support has now been removed, and Java 8 is the new baseline for commercial editions, Java 11 for the jOOQ Open Source Edition, meaning the OSS Edition is now finally modular, and we get access to little things like the Flow API (see R2DBC) and @Deprecate(forRemoval, since).

Upgrading to Java 8 allows for exciting new improvements to our internals, as we can finally use default methods, lambdas, generalised target type inference, effectively final, diamond operators, try-with-resources, string switches, and what not. Improving our code base leads to dogfooding, and that again leads to new features for you. For example, we've put a lot of emphasis on ResultQuery.collect(), refactoring internals:

There are new auxiliary types, like org.jooq.Rows and org.jooq.Records for more functional transformation convenience. More functions mean less loops, and also less ArrayList allocations.

At the same time, we've started building a Java 17 ready distribution for the commercial editions, which unlocks better record type support.

Refactoring of ResultQuery to work with DML

With all the above goodies related to Java 8, and a more functional usage of jOOQ, we've also finally refactored our DML statement type hierarchy (INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE), to let their respective RETURNING clauses return an actual ResultQuery. That means you can now stream(), collect(), fetchMap() and subscribe() (via R2DBC) to your DML statements, and even put them in the WITH clause (in PostgreSQL).

Massive improvements to the parser / translator use case

jOOQ's secondary value proposition is to use its parser and translator, instead of the DSL API, which is also available for free on our website:

With increasing demand for this product, we've greatly improved the experience:

CREATE PROCEDURE, FUNCTION, TRIGGER and more procedural instructions

Over the recent releases, we've started working on procedural language extensions for the commercial distributions. In addition to creating anonymous blocks, we now also support all lifecycle management DDL for procedures, functions, and triggers, which can contain procedural language logic.

This is great news if you're supporting multiple RDBMS and want to move some more data processing logic to the server side in a vendor agnostic way.

Explicit JDBC driver dependencies to avoid reflection

To get AOP ready, we're slowly removing internal reflection usage, meaning we're experimenting with an explicit JDBC driver build-time dependency. This currently affects:

Only drivers available from Maven Central have been added as dependency so far.

Version 3.14.0 - October 19, 2020

In this release, we've sorted our github issues according to user feedback and finally implemented some of the most wanted features, which include better Kotlin support, embeddable types, and domain type support.

In addition to this, we believe that our newly added XML and JSON operation support will be a leading game changer in how ORMs interact with SQL databases in the future.


Standard SQL has long supported SQL/XML, and since recently, most RDBMS also support standard SQL/JSON or vendor specific variants thereof. While ORDBMS extensions have never seen the adoption they deserve, XML and JSON do. It makes sense to occasionally denormalise data and store documents in the database directly. However, this is not what we're most excited about.

We're excited about our support for all the fancy operators like:

Similar functions are available for XML, like XMLTABLE, XMLELEMENT, XMLAGG, etc. All editions of jOOQ 3.14 support standard SQL XML and JSON operators, and emulate them where non-standard support is available (e.g. PostgreSQL and SQL Server).

The commercial editions also support SQL Server's very convenient FOR XML and FOR JSON APIs, emulating that syntax using standard operators elsewhere. See:

But that's not all of it! If you have Gson, Jackson, or JAXB on the classpath, we can use that to map org.jooq.XML, org.jooq.JSON, org.jooq.JSONB types from your query results to your nested data structures, automatically. See:

These approaches are extremely powerful. In many cases, you might just skip most of your middleware layer and bind a REST or similar endpoint directly to a jOOQ / SQL query, producing JSON for your frontend:

Kotlin support

We've long supported some Scala extensions and a ScalaGenerator. Kotlin is an additional very promising JVM language where a new jOOQ-kotlin module as well as a KotlinGenerator will add a lot of value for your jOOQ/Kotlin integration.

The KotlinGenerator offers, among other things:

The jOOQ-kotlin module offers some useful extension functions to further improve the experience of the jOOQ/Kotlin integration.

In addition to the above, we've annotated the entire jOOQ API with nullability annotations from JetBrains:

This will remove many of the annoying T! types in your Kotlin/jOOQ code, turning them into T or T? types instead, giving you more confidence.

With these improvements, we've also critically reviewed our existing ScalaGenerator, fixing a lot of bugs.

Embeddable types

One of the biggest new features in jOOQ 3.14 is inspired by JPA, which ships with embeddable types. An embeddable type is an emulation of a database user- defined type (UDT), which are supported natively only in Oracle and PostgreSQL. The biggest gain of such types is to create more semantic, composite data types in your database schema, and profit from the additional type safety.

Our interpretation of the feature is mostly in the source code generator, whose output now becomes even more valuable. All jOOQ editions support the basic infrastructure to pattern-match column sets and turn them into synthetic embeddable types.

In addition to the above, our commercial editions offer some auto configuration of embeddable types in cases where they really shine:

We took the concept a step further than JPA. In jOOQ, embeddable types can act as views on the underlying columns, without replacing them, or as a replacement like in JPA. jOOQ respects all levels of relational modelling, including overlapping constraints and thus allowing for two embeddable types to overlap.

For more information, please refer to:

DOMAIN types

Speaking of types, some database dialects support standard SQL DOMAIN types, which are a simpler form of UDTs. Instead of working with low level technical types like VARCHAR(10), why not give your single-column types a name, and add a few re-usable CHECK constraints to them?

That's what a DOMAIN type is:

All of the above is reusable across your schema and if you're commercially licensed, you can even have the code generator auto-generate embeddable types for all of your domains to profit from the additional type safety in Java.

For more information, please refer to:

Synthetic constraints

Related to the above improved code generator output are synthetic objects, such as the previously supported synthetic primary keys, and now also synthetic unique and foreign keys.

If you invest heavily in security and re-usable components within your database, you will make heavy use of SQL views. Unfortunately, views do not have any meta data like foreign key constraints - despite the meta data being "obvious" to you the database designer. With synthetic constraints, you can tell jOOQ about your knowledge of underlying constraints.

The main benefits of meta data being available to jOOQ being:

Better MERGE support

We've finally tackled support for more advanced MERGE statement clauses and now support:


With the parser and our translator tool, we'll invest more and more in new use-cases for putting jOOQ to use other than as an embeddable DSL in Java.

Our translation capabilities have already been strong, and with a new set of SQL transformations, they become even stronger helping customers migrate off RDBMS A towards RDBMS B (and back, if they made a mistake).

While our website translator is free of charge, the jOOQ library can always be used programmatically, or as a command line utility:

To make this use-case even more useful, new transformation features have been added, including:

This is an exciting area that we'll be exploring for our commercially licensed customers in the future, while even the jOOQ Open Source Edition profits from these improvements. For example, the infrastructure created for transformations finally enabled emulating PostgreSQL's DISTINCT ON clause, elsewhere.

Version 3.13.0 - February 13, 2020

Starting with this release, we will further embrace our support for parsing, translating, executing, and now also interpreting DDL statements. The driving force is better code generation support, but in the future, also better integration with database change management systems like Flyway or Liquibase.

We've added support for a very promising new dialect: CockroachDB.

We're starting to support one of SQL:2011's most interesting features: temporal tables for system and application time versioning, and we've generally improved the way we build and distribute jOOQ to our paying customers.

SQL Dialects

We've worked together with a team of great engineers at CockroachDB to speed up our newly added, formal CockroachDB support in the jOOQ Professional and Enterprise Editions. While many users have successfully used the POSTGRES dialect with CockroachDB for simple integrations, this new dialect is now fully integration tested and supported for future jOOQ and CockroachDB versions. The integration fixed a variety of issues and minor differences that we have encountered in the code generator and the runtime library.

We've added support for a variety of features now available in Firebird 3.0+, MariaDB 10.3+, MySQL 8+, and PostgreSQL 10+.

DDL interpretation

Our biggest investment has been made in the area of DDL interpretation. Since jOOQ 3.9, we can parse more and more SQL syntax. A logical next step is to allow for interpreting parsed (or ordinary, DSL constructed) DDL statements in order to maintain an incremental, in-memory meta model of a database. This has a variety of benefits, which we will take advantage of in this release and in the future.

The main out of the box benefits in this version include:

In the context of these investments, we have improved a variety of infrastructure that were needed for these features and that users can benefit as well. These improvements include:

Temporal table support

Perhaps the SQL:2011 standard's most exciting "new" feature are temporal tables, an enhancement on top of Oracle's historic flashback query feature, and much more.

In many systems, single, or bi temporal versioning of data is essential. The two dimensions of versioning that are now supported in jOOQ are:

jOOQ 3.13 supports org.jooq.Period and related API in Select, Update, and Delete to manipulate and query temporal tables in dialects that ship with native support for these features. To different degrees, these dialects include:

Emulations of incompletely supported syntax in the above dialects, as well as in all other dialects will be added in future jOOQ versions, making temporal validity a problem of the past.

More details here:

This is a commercially licensed only feature.

Build improvements

We've invested a lot of time in improving our build automation using newer Jenkins features that allow us to publish builds more frequently, especially snapshot builds of upcoming minor releases for early adopters, as well as patch releases for customers needing urgent fixes:

These new releases also include trial versions for Java 6, 8, 11, without the need to register for extended trials.

In addition to the above, we've improved and continue to improve our documentation of features per edition, in the future.

Procedural API improvement

In jOOQ 3.12, we've introduced support for procedural languages, which we are improving in every new release. jOOQ 3.13 adds support for additional procedural statements, including:

In the future, we're planning to support also the generation of functions, procedures, and triggers through standard jOOQ API.

More details here:

This is a commercially licensed only feature.


Some of our users have had a lot of success using our checker-framework or ErrorProne integrations, which allow for some static API usage analysis in client code (e.g. plain SQL / SQLi risk, dialect compatiblity, etc.)

Starting from jOOQ 3.13, we're also adding support for ErrorProne's sub project "refaster", which allows for automatically rewriting bad API usage to something better, such as for example:

Version 3.12.0 - August 29, 2019

In this release, we've focused on a lot of minor infrastructure tasks, greatly improving the overall quality of jOOQ. We've reworked some of our automated integration tests, which has helped us fix a big number of not yet discovered issues, including a much better coverage of our 26 supported RDBMS dialects.

We're excited about these internal changes, as they will help us implement a lot of features that have been requested by many for a long time, including an immutable query object model, with all the secondary benefits like caching of generated SQL, and much more powerful dynamic SQL construction and transformation in the future.

Major new features include the new procedural language API shipped with our commercial distributions, new data types including native JSON support, MemSQL support, formal Java 11+ support, a much better parser, and reactive stream API support.

Procedural languages

Following up on jOOQ 3.11's support for anonymous blocks, the jOOQ 3.12 Professional and Enterprise Editions now include support for a variety of procedural language features, including

This feature set is part of our ongoing efforts to continue supporting more advanced vendor specific functionality, including our planned definition and translation of stored procedures, triggers, and other, ad-hoc procedural logic that helps move data processing logic into the database server.

New Databases Supported

The jOOQ Professional Edition now supports the MemSQL dialect. MemSQL is derived from MySQL, although our integration tests have shown that there are numerous differences, such that supporting MemSQL formally will add a lot of value to our customers by providing much increased syntactic correctness.

Reactive streams

The reactive programming model is gaining traction in some environments as new, useful streaming APIs emerge, such as e.g. Reactor. These APIs have agreed to work with a common SPI: reactive streams, and since JDK 9 the new java.util.concurrent.Flow SPI. jOOQ 3.12 now implements these paradigms on an API level, such that an integration with APIs like Reactor becomes much more easy. The implementation still binds to JDBC, and is thus blocking. Future versions of jOOQ will abstract over JDBC to allow for running queries against ADBA (by Oracle) or R2DBC (by Spring)

New data types

We've introduced native support for a few new data types, which are often very useful in specific situations. These include:


Our parser is seeing a lot of continued improvements over the releases as we gather feedback from our users. Our main drivers for feedback are:

SQL dialect translation will evolve into an independent product in the future. DDL parsing is already very powerful, and a lot of customers rely on it for their production systems.

In the next versions, we will be able to simulate DDL on our own, without H2, which will open up a variety of possible use cases, including better schema management.

Specific jOOQ 3.12 parser improvements include:

Formal Java 11 Support

While we have been supporting Java 11 for a while through our integration tests, jOOQ 3.12 now fully supports Java 11 to help improve the experience around the transitive JAXB dependency, which we now removed entirely out of jOOQ.

The commercial editions ship with a Java 11+ supporting distribution, which includes more optimal API usage, depending on new Java 9-11 APIs. All editions, including the jOOQ Open Source Edition, have a Java 8+ distribution that supports any Java version starting from Java 8.

Commercial Editions

Dual licensing is at the core of our business, helping us to provide continued value to our customers.

In the past, the main distinction between the different jOOQ editions was the number of database products each edition supported. In the future, we want to provide even more value to our customers with commercial subscriptions. This is why, starting from jOOQ 3.12, we are now offering some new, advanced features only in our commercial distributions. Such features include:

By offering more value to our paying customers, we believe that we can continue our successful business model, which in turn allows us to continue the free jOOQ Open Source Edition for free. Our strategy is:

H2 and SQLite integration

Over the past year, both H2 and SQLite have seen a lot of improvements, which we have now supported in jOOQ as well. Specifically, H2 is moving at a very fast pace, and our traditional close cooperation got even better as we're helping the H2 team with our insights into the SQL standards, while the H2 team is helping us with our own implementations.

Other improvements

Version 3.11.0 - June 7, 2018

New Databases Supported

At last, 4 new SQL dialects have been added to jOOQ! These are:

jOOQ Professional Edition

jOOQ Enterprise Edition

Implicit Joins

One of the really cool features in ORMs like Hibernate, Doctrine, and others, is the capability of using a relationship graph notation to access another entity's columns through what is often called "implicit joins".

Instead of explicitly joining a to-one relationship to access its columns:

SELECT author.first_name, author.last_name, book.title
FROM book
JOIN author ON book.author_id =

We would like to be able to access those columns directly, using this notation:

SELECT,, book.title
FROM book

The join is implied and should be added implicitly. jOOQ now allows for this to happen when you use the code generator:,, BOOK.TITLE)

When rendering this query, the implicit join graph will be calculated on the fly and added behind the scenes to the BOOK table. This works for queries of arbitrary complexity and on any level of nested SELECT.

More details in this blog post:

DiagnosticsListener SPI

A new DiagnosticsListener SPI has been added to jOOQ:

The purpose of this SPI is to sanitise your SQL language, JDBC and jOOQ API usage. Listeners can listen to events such as:

The great thing about this SPI is that it can be exposed to clients through the JDBC API, in case of which the diagnostics feature can reverse engineer your JDBC or even JPA generated SQL. Ever wanted to detect N+1 queries from Hibernate? Pass those Hibernate-generated queries through this SPI.

Want to find missing bind variables leading to cursor cache contention or SQLi? Let jOOQ find similar SQL statements and report them. E.g.

Or also:

Anonymous blocks

Many databases support anonymous blocks to run several statements in a single block scope. For example, Oracle:

  l_var NUMBER(10);
  l_var := 10;

jOOQ now supports the new org.jooq.Block API to allow for wrapping DDL and DML statements in such a block. This is a first step towards a future jOOQ providing support for:


jOOQ's parser support is an ongoing effort. This release has added support for a lot of new SQL clauses and functions from various vendors and in various DDL and DML statements.

The parser is now also exposed through a public website and API, where SQL can be translated from one dialect to another:

This website will help further drive jOOQ API development by helping to find missing functionality that is used in real-world SQL.

Another way to access this API is through the new org.jooq.ParserCLI command line tool. For example, run:

$ java -cp jooq-3.11.0.jar org.jooq.ParserCLI -f -t ORACLE -s "SELECT * FROM (VALUES(1),(2)) AS t(a)"

To get:

select *
from (
    select null a
    from dual
    where 1 = 0
  union all (
    select *
    from (
        select 1
        from dual
      union all (
        select 2
        from dual
    ) t
) t;

Formal Java 10 Support

jOOQ 3.11 is the first release that is formally integration tested with Java 10. To use jOOQ with Java 10, use the Java 8 distribution which has not yet been modularised, but contains Automatic-Module-Name specification to be forward compatible with future, modularised jOOQ distributions.

Additionally, package names between jOOQ, jOOQ-meta, and jOOQ-codegen have been cleaned up to prevent duplicate package names, and the JAXB dependency has been added explicitly to the various artefacts. See for more details

End of Scala 2.11 support in the jOOQ Open Source Edition

Scala 2.10 and 2.11 are now only supported in the commercial distributions

Other great improvements

Version 3.10.0 - September 29, 2017

Formal Java 9 Support

jOOQ 3.10 is the first release that is formally integration tested with Java 9 along with the existing integration tests for Java 6/7 and for Java 8. To use jOOQ with Java 9 use the Java 8 distribution which has not yet been modularised, but contains Automatic-Module-Name specification to be forward compatible with future, modularised jOOQ distributions.

Cross release for Scala 2.10, 2.11, 2.12

We've been offering cross releases for Java 6/7 and Java 8 in the past and we're now doing the same for Scala. In jOOQ 3.10, Scala 2.11+ will be supported by the jOOQ Open Source Edition and Scala 2.10+ by the commercial editions.

More and better stored procedure support for Oracle and SQL Server

We've finally supported SQL Server's table-valued parameters (TVP), which are a great way of passing data sets to procedures in SQL Server.

In Oracle, we're now supporting a variety of cool PL/SQL features that are not supported directly by ojdbc, among which:

We believe that those excellent T-SQL and PL/SQL features would be used much more often by Java developers, if the serialisation was made easier. That's why jOOQ 3.10 greatly helps here.

New parser now fully supported

In jOOQ 3.9, we've introduced an interesting new feature that will allow jOOQ to be used in non-classic jOOQ contexts, e.g. as a JDBC proxy to translate SQL from dialect to dialect, or as a formatting tool.

Users who have been using jOOQ's plain SQL API will be happy to hear that using the parser, they will be able to validate their plain SQL already in the client, and possibly normalise / transform it using the entire jOOQ tool chain including the VisitListener SPI.

One immediate benefit of having a parser is the new DDLDatabase, which can reverse engineer your DDL scripts to generate jOOQ code out of them, without any connection to a database!

Support for index types

While we've supported DDL operations to create / drop indexes for a while, we haven't supported indexes in our meta model. We finally do with jOOQ 3.10. They can now be used:

Version 3.9.0 - December 23, 2016

This is another very exciting release

Experimental Parser

This is an extremely exciting strategic feature for jOOQ. jOOQ users are used to creating SQL statements by "manually" creating a SQL expression tree through the jOOQ API. But nothing should prevent us from parsing string-based (and vendor- specific!) SQL statements into jOOQ expression trees. In the future this can be used, for instance, to translate (and format) one SQL dialect into another, making jOOQ not only an excellent SQL client API for Java, but a general-purpose SQL API.

The new Parser API is available from DSLContext.parser() and is currently deprecated as "experimental" (and incomplete). We're including it in jOOQ 3.9 for public review, so we're looking forward for any feedback you may have!

Checker framework integration

We've annotated all of our API with the @Support annotation for quite a while. This annotation allows for documenting what SQL clause or function is available in what SQLDialect (and version). If that's not enough for you, do check out our new JSR 308 / Checker Framework integration, which allows jOOQ API consumers to "type check" their API usage for a given SQL dialect. For instance, using MySQL, you can now get compilation errors if you're accidentally using Oracle-specific API.

More info in this blog post here:

Better Oracle 12c and PL/SQL integration

Oracle 12c introduced a variety of new features that we finally support in jOOQ as well, including the new IDENTITY column type or the OFFSET FETCH clause, which was emulated using ROWNUM filtering, thus far.

In addition to the above, we're continuing our extended PL/SQL support by offering an emulation for the (de)serialisation of PL/SQL RECORD types. This is particularly interesting for everyone who used Oracle's now deprecated (12cR1) and removed (12cR2) JPublisher for PL/SQL bindings.

More info about this here:

JSR-310 Java Time API support

We're now confident that we can support the "old" JDBC date time types and the "new" JSR-310 Java Time API types in parallel in a single API. With this in place, jOOQ now includes a <javaTimeTypes/> code generator configuration, that replaces the "old" JDBC date time types in generated code.

The upcoming patch releases for jOOQ 3.9.x will further improve the situation for TIME[STAMP] WITH TIME ZONE types in databases that do support them. Your continued feedback in this area is very welcome.

New DDL statements and clauses

As in every release, we've added support for tons of new DDL statements and clauses, including:

Improved transactions API

The existing transactions API creates a new "scope" for each transaction, with a new, derived Configuration that contains that transactional scope (and a custom ConnectionProvider, not the user one). This was necessary from a design perspective to allow also for asynchronous transactions, which were introduced in jOOQ 3.8.

But if users can safely rely on ThreadLocal transaction semantics, the existing API that creates a new Configuration is too confusing. This is why jOOQ 3.9 now introduces the ThreadLocalTransactionProvider implementation that allows for the simpler transaction API to be used:

ctx.transaction(() -> { // Safe to re-use the "global" ctx here: ctx.insertInto(TABLE_A); ctx.update(TABLE_B); });

Besides, we now support a new TransactionListener SPI, which allows for hooking into the transaction lifecycle and execute stuff prior to beginning / committing or rolling back a transaction.

InformationSchema import and export

For a while now, we've supported the XMLDatabase in jooq-meta to generate code based on a SQL standard inspired XML format of your database schema:

This format is now also available to the jOOQ runtime library for importing and exporting schema meta information at runtime. In combination with the DSLContext.ddl() command, which was introduced in jOOQ 3.8, this makes for a very powerful schema import / export tool, which we're going to further improve in future versions.

Other minor improvements

Enjoy this exciting new milestone of jOOQ goodness!

Version 3.8.0 - May 03, 2016

Version 3.8 is a collection of very useful little features and improvements that have been sitting on our roadmap for a long time:

More Java 8 and asynchronicity support:

One of Java 8's interesting new features is the monadic support for asynchronous operation composition: CompletionStage. jOOQ now features a variety of methods like DSLContext.transactionAsync(), ResultQuery.fetchAsync(), Query.executeAsync(), but also DBMS_AQ.dequeueAsync(), which allow for leveraging this new Java 8 API. In order to inject custom Executors into jOOQ, a new ExecutorProvider SPI has been added, defaulting to an implementation that uses the ForkJoinPool.

Kotlin integration:

While we were working on jOOQ 3.8, Kotlin 1.0 was released, a very exciting new JVM language by JetBrains. We've started experimenting with the jOOQ / Kotlin integration, and we've already added new methods to leverage Kotlin's syntax sugar: Record.get() and Record.set() (as synonmys for getValue() and setValue())

With these new methods, it is possible to use Kotlin's square bracket syntax to access and modify fields in a record:

val rec = fetchOne(BOOK);
rec[BOOK.TITLE] = "10 SQL Tricks";

Stay tuned for more exciting Kotlin integration features in the near future!

The SQL Catalog type:

Most databases group objects in three hierarchy levels:

Specifically, in SQL Server, it is possible to select data from objects across several catalogs. jOOQ 3.8 finally formally supports the org.jooq.Catalog type both in the code generator as well as in the runtime.

New DDL features:

Schema migrations and initial database setups become an increasingly useful feature for many jOOQ users. In each release, we're adding support for additional statements and clauses of existing statements. jOOQ 3.8 now supports:

In addition to the above statements, we now allow for generating a set of DDL commands from a Schema or Table reference. This is very useful e.g. to recreate an Oracle schema on an H2 in-memory test database.

Code generator improvements:

Among many other improvements, we've simplified data type conversion and binding configurations. This essentially means: Much less XML for the same feature set!

Also, we've added additional flags that help maintaining more fine-grained control over which artefacts you really want to generate.

General notes:

We have once more postponed thorough JSR 310 (java.time) API support. This feature addition is one of our users' most wanted. We're aware of this and sorry we still couldn't deliver it. The risks of getting things wrong in terms of backwards-compatibility are high, and we don't want to get this wrong.

We have changed some internals, which may affect those of you who heavily extend jOOQ. In particular, the deprecated QueryPartInternal.toSQL() and bind() are no longer overridable. Please move your implementation to the accept() method, which was added in jOOQ 3.4. Our main benefit from this incompatible change is a substantial performance improvement, as we can now traverse the jOOQ QueryPart expression tree only once in order to collect the SQL string and the bind variables, which leads to a roughly 40% faster SQL rendering in benchmarks!

All in all, this is an exciting and big new release with tons of little new features that you won't want to miss once you have upgraded! Details below.

Version 3.7.0 - October 8, 2015

jOOQ 3.7 means Java 8

This release is great news for all of you working with Java 8. From jOOQ 3.7 onwards, we officially support Java 8 and its new APIs, including Stream, Optional, FunctionalInterface, as well as Java 7 features like AutoCloseable, SafeVarargs, and many more. The newly introduced Stream type is a very suitable match for a JDBC ResultSet, or a jOOQ Cursor, given that jOOQ already knows all the type information on individual streaming elements.

The new paradigm that has reached the JDK with Java 8 is functional programming. SQL and functional programming are a perfect match for data-driven algorithms that aim for transforming values with functions. We've blogged about this in the past:

If you're still on an older version of Java, we'll continue supporting Java 6 for our commercial customers, where we offer a Java 6 build and a Java 8 build.

jOOQ 3.7 means even more Big Data: Azure, Redshift, Vertica

SQL is the language of Big Data. When you have billions of rows in your table, a column store might seem more suitable than a row store ("NewSQL"), and with SQL, you can optimally query, transform, and aggregate your data. jOOQ fits this model perfectly!

jOOQ 3.6 added support for SAP HANA. jOOQ 3.7 now also adds support for SQL Azure, Redshift, and Vertica. With these additions, jOOQ is the best choic for your Java / Big Data application.

jOOQ 3.7 adds support for PostgreSQL 9.5

PostgreSQL is advancing fast. We've now added support for their next major release, which includes GROUPING SETS, UPSERT, SKIP LOCKED, ROW UPDATES and many other features

Other minor improvements

As always, the convenience of the jOOQ API has greatly increased, having added new overloads for popular methods as well as new access paths to existing functionality.

We've also added support for new JOIN types, such as LEFT SEMI JOIN (EXISTS), LEFT ANTI JOIN (NOT EXISTS), or MySQL's STRAIGHT_JOIN syntax.

Writing PL/SQL? Working with TABLE and OBJECT types has now gotten even simpler, and we've also added support for Oracle database links.

Version 3.6.0 - April 22, 2015

jOOQ goes Big Data with HANA

We've been working hard to add support for our 18th database dialect: SAP HANA, which is now officially supported by the jOOQ Enterprise Edition. HANA is SAP's excellent Big Data offering, supporting column stores combined with the power of SQL standard OLAP functionality, such as window functions. Integrate HANA into your Java or Scala applications with ease, using jOOQ!

Let's talk Scala

We're glad to welcome an increasingly big jOOQ-for-Scala community, an integration where jOOQ really shines thanks to some advanced Scala language features. In order to help you integrate even better, we've now added the new ScalaGenerator that generates jOOQ meta data classes in Scala, instead of Java

Integrate your code generation with JPA

In the previous release, we've implemented a new XMLDatabase that can load arbitrary XML schema metadata formats (via XSLT). We've taken this a step further using our new jOOQ-meta-extensions artefact, which hosts alternative meta data sources, such as your JPA-annotated classes, or ERD exports.

Speaking of XML

Our XML-in-the-database integration just got better! We're showing you in a couple of example Bindings how to get the most out of your vendor-specific data types, such as XML or JSON - which can be integrated into your jOOQ queries effortlessly!

Let's talk some more DDL

This release also adds support for a couple of additional DDL statements that help you standardise your schema migrations for our 18 RDBMS. The newly supported statements are:

SQL 2 jOOQ parser

One year ago, we've added the GUDU Software SQL 2 jOOQ parser with our deliverables. While we still believe that this is an excellent product, we have seen little demand from our users and customers - which is why we no longer ship the parser. You can still download it from GUDU Software.

MULTISET and nested records

While we have published (as promised) some API for nested record support, we're not quite convinced of its design yet. This is why this API is still marked as "experimental". Stay tuned for future releases when we'll take these advanced ORDBMS features one step further.

Tons of new convenience API and bugfixes

jOOQ wouldn't be jOOQ if it wasn't for the myriad convenience methods that make your SQL integration lives so much easier. We've listened to our users and customers and added another bulk of useful fetch(), execute(), map() and many other convenience methods that make your SQL integration fun and efficient.

Version 3.5.0 - November 21, 2014

The new Binding SPI

The main improvement of this exciting release is the new org.jooq.Binding SPI which can be used to fully control all aspects of a user-type's JDBC interaction. This goes much further than the existing org.jooq.Converter SPI that can be used to map standard JDBC types to user-types. With the new Binding SPI, virtually *ALL* vendor-specific types can be supported now. Examples include PostgreSQL's JSON or HSTORE types, or Oracle's DATE type - which is really incorrectly represented via java.sql.Timestamp, which is why we have retrofitted the existing <dateAsTimestamp/> feature to use such bindings, now.

Stored procedures are everywhere

Stored procedure support was generally improved in this release. This includes lots of new little features and conveniences for use with PL/SQL or Transact-SQL. For instance, jOOQ 3.5.0 now supports cross-schema references of PL/SQL OBJECT and TABLE types, which allows for binding directly to Oracle Spatial. We've blogged about this exciting improvement here:

And while we were at it, we've also added basic support for Oracle AQ, which integrates very nicely with our OBJECT type support!

In Transact-SQL and MySQL, we now support fetching arbitrary numbers of Results from stored procedures, and we've also implemented support for Firebird PSQL, including Firebird's very interesting syntax for table-valued functions.

By the way, we support user-defined aggregate functions for a variety of databases, including Oracle, PostgreSQL, and HSQLDB. Definitely something you should look into!

SQL improvements

In this release, we've finally got support for UNION, INTERSECT, and EXCEPT right with respect to nesting such operations, as well as combining them with ORDER BY and LIMIT .. OFFSET.

Let's talk some more DDL

We've continued to add support for DDL statements, including

We'll continue to add support for more DDL statements also in the future.

Code generation improvements

We've added support for the new XMLDatabase, a code generation configuration that allows to read meta information from XML formats, e.g. from a standard INFORMATION_SCHEMA.xml, or from an ERD's XML export format:

Future versions of jOOQ will include built-in support for a variety of XML formats.

We've had an awesome contribution by Etienne Studer from Gradleware to help our users integrate the jOOQ code generation with their Gradle builds.

Last but not least: Informix!

Oh, and by the way, we now also support IBM's second most popular database: Informix. Support for this database will be included in the jOOQ Enterprise Edition.

Version 3.4.0 - June 20, 2014

With this awesome new minor release version, we have finally started supporting a couple of very important aspects of the SQL language:

Common table expressions have been missing from jOOQ for a long time, and they're now finally part of our DSL API, both for recursive or regular usage.

Transactions are handled very nicely in JavaEE or through Spring TX. But if you're running small standalone programs with JDBC (and jOOQ) only, you have to resort to a transaction API that is no longer contemporay. With jOOQ 3.4, we're now shipping a Java-8 ready transaction API and a default implementation backed by JDBC transactions. Our manual also contains an example implementation that is backed by Spring TX. While we do not want to compete with popular transaction models, we do want to provide a simple, functional-interface oriented API to apply transactions in client code.

DDL is very hard to standardise across databases, and with jOOQ 3.4, we have now started adding type safe support for some DDL statements, including thus far:

We're going to be adding support for more DDL statements in jOOQ 3.5 as part of our more general DDL support strategy.

Apart from that, there is a tremendous amount of minor improvements. See below for details:

Every SQL developer should have this tool in their toolchain. And now, with jOOQ 3.3, we natively support a synthetic SQL clause for you to express keyset paging very easily. jOOQ is the only database software out there to do so!

Gudu Software's SQL 2 jOOQ Parser

We're very happy to announce our collaboration with Gudu Software Ltd who have implemented a very powerful SQL parser and transformer for enterprise databases.

Together with Gudu Software, we have created an Open Source SQL 2 jOOQ parser that takes native SQL statements as input and generates jOOQ code as output.

The source code can be found here:

And our manual features a tutorial here:

We will ship, test and maintain this awesome new addition with our own deliverables. So far, SQL 2 jOOQ supports the MySQL and PostgreSQL dialects and it is in an alpha stadium. Please, community, provide as much feedback as possible to make this great tool rock even more!

Please take note of the fact that the sql2jooq library is Open Source, but it depends on the commercial gsp.jar parser, whose trial licensing terms can be seen here:

Great new SQL Feature Support

We've been looking around for SQL standard and vendor-specific features, such as the WINDOW clause (standard!), CROSS APPLY, OUTER APPLY, LATERAL join, DEFAULTs for inserts, and nice datetime arithmetic functions and emulations thereof.

As always, we've also blogged about all these features. See the following links for more details:

Formal Spring integration support

Spring is one of the most popular frameworks to handle transactions, and it does so very well. With the help of our community, we've established new standards and examples of how to get started very quickly with jOOQ and Spring. See the following resources for details:

Version 3.2.0 - October 9, 2013

With the new jOOQ 3.2, apart from introducing great new features, we are changing quite a few things on how we operate. At Data Geekery GmbH, we believe in Open Source. But we also believe in the creative power enabled by commercial software. This is why we have chosen to implement a dual-licensing strategy. Read more about this strategy here:

But jOOQ 3.2 also ships with great new features! They include:

A new RecordListener SPI which can be hooked into the Configuration in order to control ActiveRecord lifecycle events. This is very useful if you want to initialise some database records prior to inserting new data, or if you want to implement a central ID generation strategy, e.g. by generating Java UUIDs.

A new, experimental VisitListener SPI which can be hooked into the Configuration in order to control jOOQ's complete QueryPart rendering and variable binding lifecycle. Use this powerful SPI to perform custom SQL transformation, e.g. to implement shared-schema multi-tenancy, or a security layer centrally preventing access to certain data.

With this release, the Oracle and DB2 SQL dialect families will now be able to distinguish Oracle 10g, 11g, 12c features, as well as DB2 9.x, 10.x features. This is important as more and more databases start supporting the SQL standard OFFSET .. FETCH clause and other clauses that are emulated by jOOQ.

The code generator has experienced a lot of improvements, mainly including a new MatcherStrategy, which can be configured through Maven or XML code generator configurations. This generator strategy will allow you to implement several regular-expression based naming pattern replacements for all sorts of generated artefacts. This is extremely useful to generate table, record, pojo class name prefixes, suffixes in particular, or to just completely redesign the way the jOOQ code generator generates things.

Version 3.1.0 - June 30, 2013

With this release, MariaDB is now finally officially supported by jOOQ! MariaDB is a MySQL fork, which currently has a very similar feature set as its parent. As such forks tend to evolve into different directions very quickly, it makes sense to add formal support in jOOQ.

SQL Server 2012 is another SQL dialect that is now officially supported in jOOQ, allowing to make use of the newly supported ROWS UNBOUNDED PRECEDING and similar windowing clauses, as well as the long awaited OFFSET .. FETCH clause. From now on, jOOQ allows to define a super-set of SQL dialects by the same vendors with only subtle differences.

POJO mapping is taken to the next level. jOOQ opened up its internal DefaultRecordMapper providing useful Record to POJO mapping algorithms. But your custom domain model might be more complex. Instead of creating the next impedance mismatch, trying to foresee your own mapping algorithm needs, jOOQ allows you to inject a RecordMapperProvider into your Configuration, allowing to override record mapping with arbitrary behaviour.

This minor release is also a strong step forward towards a more unified SQL experience, where row value expression IN predicates and comparison predicates are simulated with an equivalent EXISTS predicate. See this blog post for more details:

Note, that for technical reasons, jOOQ 3.0.0 could not yet be integration tested with DB2, Ingres, and Sybase ASE. Consider using jOOQ 2.6, instead

Version 3.0.0 - April 28, 2013

This major release is a great move towards better integration of SQL as a language in Java. Unlike any other database abstraction framework, jOOQ now formally supports the notion of "row value expressions". The jOOQ API uses Xtend-generated API types from Row1 .. Row22, as well as Record1 .. Record22 to bring you even more compile-time typesafety on a record-level.

In SQL, you can typesafely write

  SELECT * FROM t WHERE (t.a, t.b) = (1, 2)
  SELECT * FROM t WHERE (t.a, t.b) OVERLAPS (date1, date2)
  SELECT * FROM t WHERE (t.a, t.b) IN (SELECT x, y FROM t2)
  UPDATE t SET (a, b) = (SELECT x, y FROM t2 WHERE ...)
  INSERT INTO t (a, b) VALUES (1, 2)

In jOOQ, you can now (also typesafely!) write

  select().from(t).where(row(t.a, t.b).eq(1, 2));
  // Type-check here: ----------------->  ^^^^
  select().from(t).where(row(t.a, t.b).overlaps(date1, date2));
  // Type-check here: ------------------------> ^^^^^^^^^^^^
  select().from(t).where(row(t.a, t.b).in(select(t2.x, t2.y).from(t2)));
  // Type-check here: -------------------------> ^^^^^^^^^^
  update(t).set(row(t.a, t.b), select(t2.x, t2.y).where(...));
  // Type-check here: --------------> ^^^^^^^^^^
  insertInto(t, t.a, t.b).values(1, 2);
  // Type-check here: ---------> ^^^^

This also applies for existing API, which doesn't involve row value expressions:

  // Type-check here: ---------------> ^^^^
  // Type-check here: -------------------> ^^^^
  // Type-check here: ---------------> ^^^^

And for UNIONs

  select(t1.a, t1.b).from(t1).union(select(t2.a, t2.b).from(t2));
  // Type-check here: -------------------> ^^^^^^^^^^

These type-checks are preformed by your Java compiler, considering the generic type information of your SQL statement's Record data types. These include:

The highest degree of typesafety was chosen to be 22, to match Scala's Tuple22, Product22 and Function22 types. Higher degree records are still supported by jOOQ, just without the additional typesafety.

This Record typesafety is applied to

Apart from this major improvement, there had been many minor changes throughout the jOOQ API. Here are some important ones:

As this is a major release, some backwards-incompatibilities were inevitable. For those users among you, migrating from jOOQ 2.x to 3.0, here are a couple of useful hints:

Note, that for technical reasons, jOOQ 3.0.0 could not yet be integration tested with DB2, Ingres, and Sybase ASE. Consider using jOOQ 2.6, instead

Note, that further code generation and model API improvements were postponed to a later release

Note, previous release candidates contained more features, improvements and bug fixes. See their respective sections for details.

Features and improvements

#2410 Add some more API usage examples to the section about ResultSet fetching
#2415 Add Constants.MINOR_VERSION and Constants.FULL_VERSION for internal and external reuse

Bug fixes

Version 3.0.0 (RC3) - April 12, 2013

This major release is a great move towards better integration of SQL as a language in Java. Unlike any other database abstraction framework, jOOQ now formally supports the notion of "row value expressions". The jOOQ API uses Xtend-generated API types from Row1 .. Row22, as well as Record1 .. Record22 to bring you even more compile-time typesafety on a record-level.

See release 3.0.0 for more information.

Version 2.6.0 - October 26, 2012

This release has a new main feature: the type-safe support for row value expressions also known as tuples - up to a degree of 8. The API is formed in a similar way as pre-existing tuple support in languages like C# or Scala.

jOOQ's Scala integration has also been improved through the new jOOQ-Scala module, which provides some useful implicit defs for operator overloading. Future versions of jOOQ-Scala may experiment with Scala 2.10's Macros

This release also ships with a lot of new deprecation to help you prepare for the upcoming major release.
