SQL Parser CLI

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

The Parser API can be used as a translator between source and target dialects programmatically, as we've seen in the previous section about the parser API. This functionality can also usefully be accessed on the command line as shown below:

$ java -cp jooq-3.13.6.jar:reactive-streams-1.0.2.jar org.jooq.ParserCLI -h
  -f / --formatted                          Format output SQL
  -h / --help                               Display this help
  -k / --keyword      <RenderKeywordStyle>  Specify the output keyword style (org.jooq.conf.RenderKeywordStyle)
  -i / --identifier   <RenderNameStyle>     Specify the output identifier style (org.jooq.conf.RenderNameStyle)
  -F / --from-dialect <SQLDialect>          Specify the input dialect (org.jooq.SQLDialect)
  -T / --to-dialect   <SQLDialect>          Specify the output dialect (org.jooq.SQLDialect)
  -s / --sql          <String>              Specify the input SQL string

  -I / --interactive                        Enter interactive mode

$ java -cp jooq-3.13.6.jar:reactive-streams-1.0.2.jar org.jooq.ParserCLI -T ORACLE -s "SELECT substring('abcde', 2, 3)"
select substr('abcde', 2, 3) from dual;

Windows users: Please replace : by ; in the above examples.

Another way to use this API is the https://www.jooq.org/translate website.
