With jOOQ 3.9, support for JSR-310 java.time types has been added to the jOOQ API and to the code generator. Users of Java 8 can now specify that the jOOQ code generator should prefer JSR 310 types over their equivalent JDBC types. This includes:

In order to activate the generation of these types, use:

XML (standalone and maven)

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

new org.jooq.meta.jaxb.Configuration()
    new Generate()

See the configuration XSD andprogrammatic code generation for more details.
