LEAD

Applies to ✅ Open Source Edition   ✅ Express Edition   ✅ Professional Edition   ✅ Enterprise Edition

The LEAD window function allows for getting the value of an expression evaluated on the next row, or the nth next row if an offset is given.

SELECT
  ID,
  lead(ID) OVER (ORDER BY ID),
  lead(ID, 2) OVER (ORDER BY ID),
  lead(ID, 2, -1) OVER (ORDER BY ID)
FROM
  BOOK;
create.select(
         BOOK.ID,
         lead(BOOK.ID).over(orderBy(BOOK.ID)),
         lead(BOOK.ID, 2).over(orderBy(BOOK.ID)),
         lead(BOOK.ID, 2, -1).over(orderBy(BOOK.ID)))
     .from(BOOK)
     .fetch();

Producing:

+----+------+------+------+
| id | lead | lead | lead |
+----+------+------+------+
|  1 |    2 |    3 |    3 |
|  2 |    3 |    4 |    4 |
|  3 |    4 |      |   -1 |
|  4 |      |      |   -1 |
+----+------+------+------+
