Table columns are the most simple implementations of a column expression. They are mainly produced by jOOQ's code generator and can be dereferenced from the generated tables. This manual is full of examples involving table columns. Another example is given in this query:
SELECT BOOK.ID, BOOK.TITLE FROM BOOK WHERE BOOK.TITLE LIKE '%SQL%' ORDER BY BOOK.TITLE
create.select(BOOK.ID, BOOK.TITLE) .from(BOOK) .where(BOOK.TITLE.like("%SQL%")) .orderBy(BOOK.TITLE);
Table columns implement a more specific interface called org.jooq.TableField, which is parameterised with its associated <R extends Record> record type.
