jOOQ-kotlin is a maven module used for leveraging some advanced Kotlin features for those users that wish to use jOOQ with Kotlin.
You can integrate it using the following dependency:
<dependency> <!-- Use org.jooq for the Open Source Edition org.jooq.pro for commercial editions with Java 17 support, org.jooq.pro-java-11 for commercial editions with Java 11 support, org.jooq.pro-java-8 for commercial editions with Java 8 support, org.jooq.trial for the free trial edition with Java 17 support, org.jooq.trial-java-11 for the free trial edition with Java 11 support, org.jooq.trial-java-8 for the free trial edition with Java 8 support Note: Only the Open Source Edition is hosted on Maven Central. Import the others manually from your distribution --> <groupId>org.jooq</groupId> <artifactId>jooq-kotlin</artifactId> <version>3.18.0-SNAPSHOT</version> </dependency>
The following sections highlight a few useful extensions from that module.
Note that even without that module, you can take advantage of a lot of kotlin language features using vanilla jOOQ API, which has been designed with a strong kotlin focus, in mind. For more details, see this blog post.
