JDBC flags

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

JDBC knows a couple of execution flags and modes, which can be set through the jOOQ API as well. jOOQ essentially supports these flags and execution modes:

public interface Query extends QueryPart, Attachable {

    // [...]

    // The query execution timeout.
    // -----------------------------------------------------------
    Query queryTimeout(int timeout);

public interface ResultQuery<R extends Record> extends Query {

    // [...]

    // The query execution timeout.
    // -----------------------------------------------------------
    ResultQuery<R> queryTimeout(int timeout);

    // Flags allowing to specify the resulting ResultSet modes
    // -----------------------------------------------------------
    ResultQuery<R> resultSetConcurrency(int resultSetConcurrency);
    ResultQuery<R> resultSetType(int resultSetType);
    ResultQuery<R> resultSetHoldability(int resultSetHoldability);

    // The buffer size for JDBC cursors
    // -----------------------------------------------------------
    ResultQuery<R> fetchSize(int size);

    // The maximum number of rows to be fetched by JDBC
    // -----------------------------------------------------------
    ResultQuery<R> maxRows(int rows);


Using ResultSet concurrency with ExecuteListeners

An example of why you might want to manually set a ResultSet's concurrency flag to something non-default is given here:

DSL.using(new DefaultConfiguration()
   .set(ExecuteListener.onRecordStart(ctx -> {
        try {

            // Change values in the cursor before reading a record
            ctx.resultSet().updateString(BOOK.TITLE.getName(), "New Title");
        catch (SQLException e) {
            throw new DataAccessException("Exception", e);
   .select(BOOK.ID, BOOK.TITLE)

In the above example, your custom ExecuteListener callback is triggered before jOOQ loads a new Record from the java.sql.ResultSet. With the concurrency being set to ResultSet.CONCUR_UPDATABLE, you can now modify the database cursor through the standard java.sql.ResultSet API.
