The MEDIAN() aggregate function calculates the median value of all input values. MEDIAN(x) is equivalent to standard SQL PERCENTILE_CONT(0.5) WITHIN GROUP (ORDER BY x), see PERCENTILE_CONT.

SELECT median(ID)
FROM BOOK
create.select(median(BOOK.ID))
      .from(BOOK)

Producing:

+--------+
| median |
+--------+
|    2.5 |
