Interface WithStep

  • All Superinterfaces:
    QueryPart, Serializable

    public interface WithStep
    extends QueryPart
    This type is part of the jOOQ DSL to create Select, Insert, Update, Delete, Merge statements prefixed with a WITH clause and with CommonTableExpressions.


     DSL.with("table", "col1", "col2")
            select(one(), two())

    Referencing XYZ*Step types directly from client code

    It is usually not recommended to reference any XYZ*Step types directly from client code, or assign them to local variables. When writing dynamic SQL, creating a statement's components dynamically, and passing them to the DSL API statically is usually a better choice. See the manual's section about dynamic SQL for details:

    Drawbacks of referencing the XYZ*Step types directly:

    • They're operating on mutable implementations (as of jOOQ 3.x)
    • They're less composable and not easy to get right when dynamic SQL gets complex
    • They're less readable
    • They might have binary incompatible changes between minor releases
