ScalaGenerator

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

jOOQ can generate Scala code instead of Java code, which allows for leveraging a few Scala language features also in generated code.

In order to use the ScalaGenerator, simply place the following class reference into your code generation configuration:

XML (standalone and maven)
Programmatic
Gradle
<configuration>
  <generator>
    <name>org.jooq.codegen.ScalaGenerator</name>
  </generator>
</configuration>

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

new org.jooq.meta.jaxb.Configuration()
  .withGenerator(new Generator()
    .withName("org.jooq.codegen.ScalaGenerator")
  )

See the configuration XSD andprogrammatic code generation for more details.

myConfigurationName(sourceSets.main) {
  generator {
    name = 'org.jooq.codegen.ScalaGenerator'
  }
}

See the configuration XSD andgradle code generation for more details.

Most of the code generation configuration remains the same for as long as it's independent of the generation language. But there are a few Scala specific configuration flags, which are documented below:

XML (standalone and maven)
Programmatic
Gradle
<configuration>
  <generator>
    <generate>

      <!-- Generate POJOs as case classes, when using the ScalaGenerator. Default is true. -->
      <pojosAsScalaCaseClasses>true</pojosAsScalaCaseClasses>
    </generate>
  </generator>
</configuration>

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

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

      // Generate POJOs as case classes, when using the ScalaGenerator. Default is true.
      .withPojosAsScalaCaseClasses(true)
  )

See the configuration XSD andprogrammatic code generation for more details.

myConfigurationName(sourceSets.main) {
  generator {
    generate {

      // Generate POJOs as case classes, when using the ScalaGenerator. Default is true.
      pojosAsScalaCaseClasses = true
    }
  }
}

See the configuration XSD andgradle code generation for more details.
