Fully Qualified Types

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

By default, the jOOQ code generator references all types as unqualified types, generating the necessary import statement at the beginning of generated classes.

In rare cases, this can cause problems when two types conflict with each other, e.g. when there is both a TABLE and a TABLE_RECORD table (generating a TableRecord org.jooq.Record type for TABLE as well as a TableRecord org.jooq.Table type for TABLE_RECORD). In this case, users can specify a regular expression that matches all objects whose corresponding generated artefacts should never be imported, but always be fully qualified.

XML (standalone and maven)
<configuration xmlns="">
new org.jooq.meta.jaxb.Configuration()
    new Generate()
myConfigurationName(sourceSets.main) {
  generator {
    generate {
      fullyQualifiedTypes = '.*\\.MY_TABLE'

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