Keyword style

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

In all SQL dialects, keywords are case insensitive, and this is also the default in jOOQ, which mostly generates lower-case keywords.

Users may wish to adapt this and they have these options for the renderKeywordStyle setting:

  • AS_IS (the default): Generate keywords as they are defined in the codebase (mostly lower case).
  • LOWER: Generate keywords in lower case.
  • UPPER: Generate keywords in upper case.

Programmatic configuration

Settings settings = new Settings()
    .withRenderKeywordStyle(RenderKeywordStyle.UPPER); // Defaults to AS_IS

XML configuration

<settings xmlns="http://www.jooq.org/xsd/jooq-runtime-3.8.0.xsd">
