Temporary tables

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

Many dialects support different notions of "temporary" tables, i.e. tables whose data and/or meta data is stored only temporarily. The details of these temporary are implementation specific. jOOQ supports the following syntaxes, both with explicit column lists or as CREATE TABLE AS SELECT:

// Create a new temporary table
create.createTemporaryTable("book_archive")
      .column("column1", INTEGER)
      .execute();

// Create a new temporary table
create.createGlobalTemporaryTable("book_archive")
      .column("column1", INTEGER)
      .execute();

Dialect support

This example using jOOQ:

createTemporaryTable("book_archive")
      .column("column1", INTEGER)

Translates to the following dialect specific expressions:
