Record Version and Timestamp Fields

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

jOOQ's org.jooq.UpdatableRecord supports an optimistic locking feature, which can be enabled in the code generator by specifying a regular expression that defines such a record's version and/or timestamp fields. These regular expressions should match at most one column per table, again either by their fully qualified names (catalog.schema.table.column_name) or by their names only (column_name):

XML (standalone and maven)

See the configuration XSD, standalone code generation, and maven code generation for more details.

See the configuration XSD andprogrammatic code generation for more details.

generationTool {
  generator {
    database {
      recordVersionFields = 'REC_VERSION'
      recordTimestampFields = 'REC_TIMESTAMP'

See the configuration XSD and gradle code generation for more details.

As always, when regular expressions are used, they are regular expressions with default flags.
