Overriding rename()

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

As of jOOQ 3.16.23, the rename() method is not declared in any super type yet, but it will be eventually, see #13937.

Occasionally, users will want to rename a table for the scope of a single query, rather than globally as with the runtime schema and table mapping feature. This can be done with Table.rename(Name):

// Overridden Book.rename() returns Book, not Table<Book>:
Book b = BOOK.rename("b");

// Type safe dereferencing of TableField:
Field<String> title = b.TITLE;

Unlike as(), this does not affect generated SQL other than assuming a table b of the same structure as BOOK exists in the schema.
