Auto-attach Records

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

By default, all records fetched through jOOQ are "attached" to the configuration that created them. This allows for features like updatable records as can be seen here:

AuthorRecord author =
DSL.using(configuration) // This configuration will be attached to any record produced by the below query.

author.store(); // This store call operates on the "attached" configuration.

In some cases (e.g. when serialising records), it may be desirable not to attach the Configuration that created a record to the record. This can be achieved with the attachRecords setting:

Example configuration

Settings settings = new Settings()
    .withAttachRecords(false); // Defaults to true
