Running the code generator with Ant

Run generation with Ant

When running code generation with ant's <java/> task, you may have to set fork="true":

<!-- Run the code generation task -->
<target name="generate-test-classes">
  <java fork="true" 
    <arg value="/path/to/configuration.xml"/>
      <pathelement location="/path/to/jooq-3.9.6.jar"/>
      <pathelement location="/path/to/jooq-meta-3.9.6.jar"/>
      <pathelement location="/path/to/jooq-codegen-3.9.6.jar"/>
      <!-- Add JDBC drivers and other required artifacts -->

Using the Ant Maven plugin

Sometimes, ant can be useful to work around a limitation (misunderstanding?) of the Maven build. Just as with the above standalone ant usage example, the jOOQ code generator can be called from the maven-antrun-plugin:

<!-- Run the code generation task -->

      <java fork="true" 
          <arg value="/path/to/configuration.xml"/>
      <!-- JDBC driver -->
      <!-- Use org.jooq            for the Open Source Edition
               org.jooq.pro        for commercial editions, 
               org.jooq.pro-java-6 for commercial editions with Java 6 support,
               org.jooq.trial      for the free trial edition 
           Note: Only the Open Source Edition is hosted on Maven Central. 
                 Import the others manually from your distribution -->
    <!-- Add JDBC drivers and other required artifacts -->
