Generated meta data

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

Generated code already implements the usual meta data API, such as org.jooq.Table, org.jooq.Field, etc., but if you need to access the powerful org.jooq.Meta API, e.g. to export DDL or XML, or create a schema diff, you can wrap your generated code using:

Meta meta = create.meta(BOOK, AUTHOR);
