Version 3.14.0 - October 19, 2020

In this release, we've sorted our github issues according to user feedback and finally implemented some of the most wanted features, which include better Kotlin support, embeddable types, and domain type support.

In addition to this, we believe that our newly added XML and JSON operation support will be a leading game changer in how ORMs interact with SQL databases in the future.


Standard SQL has long supported SQL/XML, and since recently, most RDBMS also support standard SQL/JSON or vendor specific variants thereof. While ORDBMS extensions have never seen the adoption they deserve, XML and JSON do. It makes sense to occasionally denormalise data and store documents in the database directly. However, this is not what we're most excited about.

We're excited about our support for all the fancy operators like:

Similar functions are available for XML, like XMLTABLE, XMLELEMENT, XMLAGG, etc. All editions of jOOQ 3.14 support standard SQL XML and JSON operators, and emulate them where non-standard support is available (e.g. PostgreSQL and SQL Server).

The commercial editions also support SQL Server's very convenient FOR XML and FOR JSON APIs, emulating that syntax using standard operators elsewhere. See:

But that's not all of it! If you have Gson, Jackson, or JAXB on the classpath, we can use that to map org.jooq.XML, org.jooq.JSON, org.jooq.JSONB types from your query results to your nested data structures, automatically. See:

These approaches are extremely powerful. In many cases, you might just skip most of your middleware layer and bind a REST or similar endpoint directly to a jOOQ / SQL query, producing JSON for your frontend:

Kotlin support

We've long supported some Scala extensions and a ScalaGenerator. Kotlin is an additional very promising JVM language where a new jOOQ-kotlin module as well as a KotlinGenerator will add a lot of value for your jOOQ/Kotlin integration.

The KotlinGenerator offers, among other things:

The jOOQ-kotlin module offers some useful extension functions to further improve the experience of the jOOQ/Kotlin integration.

In addition to the above, we've annotated the entire jOOQ API with nullability annotations from JetBrains:

This will remove many of the annoying T! types in your Kotlin/jOOQ code, turning them into T or T? types instead, giving you more confidence.

With these improvements, we've also critically reviewed our existing ScalaGenerator, fixing a lot of bugs.

Embeddable types

One of the biggest new features in jOOQ 3.14 is inspired by JPA, which ships with embeddable types. An embeddable type is an emulation of a database user- defined type (UDT), which are supported natively only in Oracle and PostgreSQL. The biggest gain of such types is to create more semantic, composite data types in your database schema, and profit from the additional type safety.

Our interpretation of the feature is mostly in the source code generator, whose output now becomes even more valuable. All jOOQ editions support the basic infrastructure to pattern-match column sets and turn them into synthetic embeddable types.

In addition to the above, our commercial editions offer some auto configuration of embeddable types in cases where they really shine:

We took the concept a step further than JPA. In jOOQ, embeddable types can act as views on the underlying columns, without replacing them, or as a replacement like in JPA. jOOQ respects all levels of relational modelling, including overlapping constraints and thus allowing for two embeddable types to overlap.

For more information, please refer to:

DOMAIN types

Speaking of types, some database dialects support standard SQL DOMAIN types, which are a simpler form of UDTs. Instead of working with low level technical types like VARCHAR(10), why not give your single-column types a name, and add a few re-usable CHECK constraints to them?

That's what a DOMAIN type is:

All of the above is reusable across your schema and if you're commercially licensed, you can even have the code generator auto-generate embeddable types for all of your domains to profit from the additional type safety in Java.

For more information, please refer to:

Synthetic constraints

Related to the above improved code generator output are synthetic objects, such as the previously supported synthetic primary keys, and now also synthetic unique and foreign keys.

If you invest heavily in security and re-usable components within your database, you will make heavy use of SQL views. Unfortunately, views do not have any meta data like foreign key constraints - despite the meta data being "obvious" to you the database designer. With synthetic constraints, you can tell jOOQ about your knowledge of underlying constraints.

The main benefits of meta data being available to jOOQ being:

For more information, please refer to:

Better MERGE support

We've finally tackled support for more advanced MERGE statement clauses and now support:


With the parser and our translator tool, we'll invest more and more in new use-cases for putting jOOQ to use other than as an embeddable DSL in Java.

Our translation capabilities have already been strong, and with a new set of SQL transformations, they become even stronger helping customers migrate off RDBMS A towards RDBMS B (and back, if they made a mistake).

While our website translator is free of charge, the jOOQ library can always be used programmatically, or as a command line utility:

To make this use-case even more useful, new transformation features have been added, including:

This is an exciting area that we'll be exploring for our commercially licensed customers in the future, while even the jOOQ Open Source Edition profits from these improvements. For example, the infrastructure created for transformations finally enabled emulating PostgreSQL's DISTINCT ON clause, elsewhere.

Version 3.13.0 - February 13, 2020

Starting with this release, we will further embrace our support for parsing, translating, executing, and now also interpreting DDL statements. The driving force is better code generation support, but in the future, also better integration with database change management systems like Flyway or Liquibase.

We've added support for a very promising new dialect: CockroachDB.

We're starting to support one of SQL:2011's most interesting features: temporal tables for system and application time versioning, and we've generally improved the way we build and distribute jOOQ to our paying customers.

SQL Dialects

We've worked together with a team of great engineers at CockroachDB to speed up our newly added, formal CockroachDB support in the jOOQ Professional and Enterprise Editions. While many users have successfully used the POSTGRES dialect with CockroachDB for simple integrations, this new dialect is now fully integration tested and supported for future jOOQ and CockroachDB versions. The integration fixed a variety of issues and minor differences that we have encountered in the code generator and the runtime library.

We've added support for a variety of features now available in Firebird 3.0+, MariaDB 10.3+, MySQL 8+, and PostgreSQL 10+.

DDL interpretation

Our biggest investment has been made in the area of DDL interpretation. Since jOOQ 3.9, we can parse more and more SQL syntax. A logical next step is to allow for interpreting parsed (or ordinary, DSL constructed) DDL statements in order to maintain an incremental, in-memory meta model of a database. This has a variety of benefits, which we will take advantage of in this release and in the future.

The main out of the box benefits in this version include:

In the context of these investments, we have improved a variety of infrastructure that were needed for these features and that users can benefit as well. These improvements include:

Temporal table support

Perhaps the SQL:2011 standard's most exciting "new" feature are temporal tables, an enhancement on top of Oracle's historic flashback query feature, and much more.

In many systems, single, or bi temporal versioning of data is essential. The two dimensions of versioning that are now supported in jOOQ are:

jOOQ 3.13 supports org.jooq.Period and related API in Select, Update, and Delete to manipulate and query temporal tables in dialects that ship with native support for these features. To different degrees, these dialects include:

Emulations of incompletely supported syntax in the above dialects, as well as in all other dialects will be added in future jOOQ versions, making temporal validity a problem of the past.

More details here:

This is a commercially licensed only feature.

Build improvements

We've invested a lot of time in improving our build automation using newer Jenkins features that allow us to publish builds more frequently, especially snapshot builds of upcoming minor releases for early adopters, as well as patch releases for customers needing urgent fixes:

These new releases also include trial versions for Java 6, 8, 11, without the need to register for extended trials.

In addition to the above, we've improved and continue to improve our documentation of features per edition, in the future.

Procedural API improvement

In jOOQ 3.12, we've introduced support for procedural languages, which we are improving in every new release. jOOQ 3.13 adds support for additional procedural statements, including:

In the future, we're planning to support also the generation of functions, procedures, and triggers through standard jOOQ API.

More details here:

This is a commercially licensed only feature.


Some of our users have had a lot of success using our checker-framework or ErrorProne integrations, which allow for some static API usage analysis in client code (e.g. plain SQL / SQLi risk, dialect compatiblity, etc.)

Starting from jOOQ 3.13, we're also adding support for ErrorProne's sub project "refaster", which allows for automatically rewriting bad API usage to something better, such as for example:

Version 3.12.0 - August 29, 2019

In this release, we've focused on a lot of minor infrastructure tasks, greatly improving the overall quality of jOOQ. We've reworked some of our automated integration tests, which has helped us fix a big number of not yet discovered issues, including a much better coverage of our 26 supported RDBMS dialects.

We're excited about these internal changes, as they will help us implement a lot of features that have been requested by many for a long time, including an immutable query object model, with all the secondary benefits like caching of generated SQL, and much more powerful dynamic SQL construction and transformation in the future.

Major new features include the new procedural language API shipped with our commercial distributions, new data types including native JSON support, MemSQL support, formal Java 11+ support, a much better parser, and reactive stream API support.

Procedural languages

Following up on jOOQ 3.11's support for anonymous blocks, the jOOQ 3.12 Professional and Enterprise Editions now include support for a variety of procedural language features, including

This feature set is part of our ongoing efforts to continue supporting more advanced vendor specific functionality, including our planned definition and translation of stored procedures, triggers, and other, ad-hoc procedural logic that helps move data processing logic into the database server.

New Databases Supported

The jOOQ Professional Edition now supports the MemSQL dialect. MemSQL is derived from MySQL, although our integration tests have shown that there are numerous differences, such that supporting MemSQL formally will add a lot of value to our customers by providing much increased syntactic correctness.

Reactive streams

The reactive programming model is gaining traction in some environments as new, useful streaming APIs emerge, such as e.g. Reactor. These APIs have agreed to work with a common SPI: reactive streams, and since JDK 9 the new java.util.concurrent.Flow SPI. jOOQ 3.12 now implements these paradigms on an API level, such that an integration with APIs like Reactor becomes much more easy. The implementation still binds to JDBC, and is thus blocking. Future versions of jOOQ will abstract over JDBC to allow for running queries against ADBA (by Oracle) or R2DBC (by Spring)

New data types

We've introduced native support for a few new data types, which are often very useful in specific situations. These include:


Our parser is seeing a lot of continued improvements over the releases as we gather feedback from our users. Our main drivers for feedback are:

SQL dialect translation will evolve into an independent product in the future. DDL parsing is already very powerful, and a lot of customers rely on it for their production systems.

In the next versions, we will be able to simulate DDL on our own, without H2, which will open up a variety of possible use cases, including better schema management.

Specific jOOQ 3.12 parser improvements include:

Formal Java 11 Support

While we have been supporting Java 11 for a while through our integration tests, jOOQ 3.12 now fully supports Java 11 to help improve the experience around the transitive JAXB dependency, which we now removed entirely out of jOOQ.

The commercial editions ship with a Java 11+ supporting distribution, which includes more optimal API usage, depending on new Java 9-11 APIs. All editions, including the jOOQ Open Source Edition, have a Java 8+ distribution that supports any Java version starting from Java 8.

Commercial Editions

Dual licensing is at the core of our business, helping us to provide continued value to our customers.

In the past, the main distinction between the different jOOQ editions was the number of database products each edition supported. In the future, we want to provide even more value to our customers with commercial subscriptions. This is why, starting from jOOQ 3.12, we are now offering some new, advanced features only in our commercial distributions. Such features include:

By offering more value to our paying customers, we believe that we can continue our successful business model, which in turn allows us to continue the free jOOQ Open Source Edition for free. Our strategy is:

H2 and SQLite integration

Over the past year, both H2 and SQLite have seen a lot of improvements, which we have now supported in jOOQ as well. Specifically, H2 is moving at a very fast pace, and our traditional close cooperation got even better as we're helping the H2 team with our insights into the SQL standards, while the H2 team is helping us with our own implementations.

Other improvements

The complete list of changes can be found on our website:

A few improvements are worth summarising here explicitly

Implicit Joins

One of the really cool features in ORMs like Hibernate, Doctrine, and others, is the capability of using a relationship graph notation to access another entity's columns through what is often called "implicit joins".

Instead of explicitly joining a to-one relationship to access its columns:

SELECT author.first_name, author.last_name, book.title
FROM book
JOIN author ON book.author_id =

We would like to be able to access those columns directly, using this notation:

SELECT,, book.title
FROM book

The join is implied and should be added implicitly. jOOQ now allows for this to happen when you use the code generator:,, BOOK.TITLE)

When rendering this query, the implicit join graph will be calculated on the fly and added behind the scenes to the BOOK table. This works for queries of arbitrary complexity and on any level of nested SELECT.

DiagnosticsListener SPI

A new DiagnosticsListener SPI has been added to jOOQ:

The purpose of this SPI is to sanitise your SQL language, JDBC and jOOQ API usage. Listeners can listen to events such as:

The great thing about this SPI is that it can be exposed to clients through the JDBC API, in case of which the diagnostics feature can reverse engineer your JDBC or even JPA generated SQL. Ever wanted to detect N+1 queries from Hibernate? Pass those Hibernate-generated queries through this SPI.

Want to find missing bind variables leading to cursor cache contention or SQLi? Let jOOQ find similar SQL statements and report them. E.g.

Or also:

Anonymous blocks

Many databases support anonymous blocks to run several statements in a single block scope. For example, Oracle:

  l_var NUMBER(10);
  l_var := 10;

jOOQ now supports the new org.jooq.Block API to allow for wrapping DDL and DML statements in such a block. This is a first step towards a future jOOQ providing support for:


jOOQ's parser support is an ongoing effort. This release has added support for a lot of new SQL clauses and functions from various vendors and in various DDL and DML statements.

The parser is now also exposed through a public website and API, where SQL can be translated from one dialect to another:

This website will help further drive jOOQ API development by helping to find missing functionality that is used in real-world SQL.

Another way to access this API is through the new org.jooq.ParserCLI command line tool. For example, run:

$ java -cp jooq-3.11.0.jar org.jooq.ParserCLI -f -t ORACLE -s "SELECT * FROM (VALUES(1),(2)) AS t(a)"

To get:

select *
from (
    select null a
    from dual
    where 1 = 0
  union all (
    select *
    from (
        select 1
        from dual
      union all (
        select 2
        from dual
    ) t
) t;

Formal Java 10 Support

jOOQ 3.11 is the first release that is formally integration tested with Java 10. To use jOOQ with Java 10, use the Java 8 distribution which has not yet been modularised, but contains Automatic-Module-Name specification to be forward compatible with future, modularised jOOQ distributions.

Additionally, package names between jOOQ, jOOQ-meta, and jOOQ-codegen have been cleaned up to prevent duplicate package names, and the JAXB dependency has been added explicitly to the various artefacts. See for more details

End of Scala 2.11 support in the jOOQ Open Source Edition

Scala 2.10 and 2.11 are now only supported in the commercial distributions

Version 3.10.0 - September 29, 2017

Formal Java 9 Support

jOOQ 3.10 is the first release that is formally integration tested with Java 9 along with the existing integration tests for Java 6/7 and for Java 8. To use jOOQ with Java 9 use the Java 8 distribution which has not yet been modularised, but contains Automatic-Module-Name specification to be forward compatible with future, modularised jOOQ distributions.

Cross release for Scala 2.10, 2.11, 2.12

We've been offering cross releases for Java 6/7 and Java 8 in the past and we're now doing the same for Scala. In jOOQ 3.10, Scala 2.11+ will be supported by the jOOQ Open Source Edition and Scala 2.10+ by the commercial editions.

More and better stored procedure support for Oracle and SQL Server

We've finally supported SQL Server's table-valued parameters (TVP), which are a great way of passing data sets to procedures in SQL Server.

In Oracle, we're now supporting a variety of cool PL/SQL features that are not supported directly by ojdbc, among which:

We believe that those excellent T-SQL and PL/SQL features would be used much more often by Java developers, if the serialisation was made easier. That's why jOOQ 3.10 greatly helps here.

New parser now fully supported

In jOOQ 3.9, we've introduced an interesting new feature that will allow jOOQ to be used in non-classic jOOQ contexts, e.g. as a JDBC proxy to translate SQL from dialect to dialect, or as a formatting tool.

Users who have been using jOOQ's plain SQL API will be happy to hear that using the parser, they will be able to validate their plain SQL already in the client, and possibly normalise / transform it using the entire jOOQ tool chain including the VisitListener SPI.

One immediate benefit of having a parser is the new DDLDatabase, which can reverse engineer your DDL scripts to generate jOOQ code out of them, without any connection to a database!

Support for index types

While we've supported DDL operations to create / drop indexes for a while, we haven't supported indexes in our meta model. We finally do with jOOQ 3.10. They can now be used:

Version 3.9.0 - December 23, 2016

This is another very exciting release

Experimental Parser

This is an extremely exciting strategic feature for jOOQ. jOOQ users are used to creating SQL statements by "manually" creating a SQL expression tree through the jOOQ API. But nothing should prevent us from parsing string-based (and vendor- specific!) SQL statements into jOOQ expression trees. In the future this can be used, for instance, to translate (and format) one SQL dialect into another, making jOOQ not only an excellent SQL client API for Java, but a general-purpose SQL API.

The new Parser API is available from DSLContext.parser() and is currently deprecated as "experimental" (and incomplete). We're including it in jOOQ 3.9 for public review, so we're looking forward for any feedback you may have!

Checker framework integration

We've annotated all of our API with the @Support annotation for quite a while. This annotation allows for documenting what SQL clause or function is available in what SQLDialect (and version). If that's not enough for you, do check out our new JSR 308 / Checker Framework integration, which allows jOOQ API consumers to "type check" their API usage for a given SQL dialect. For instance, using MySQL, you can now get compilation errors if you're accidentally using Oracle-specific API.

More info in this blog post here:

Better Oracle 12c and PL/SQL integration

Oracle 12c introduced a variety of new features that we finally support in jOOQ as well, including the new IDENTITY column type or the OFFSET FETCH clause, which was emulated using ROWNUM filtering, thus far.

In addition to the above, we're continuing our extended PL/SQL support by offering an emulation for the (de)serialisation of PL/SQL RECORD types. This is particularly interesting for everyone who used Oracle's now deprecated (12cR1) and removed (12cR2) JPublisher for PL/SQL bindings.

More info about this here:

JSR-310 Java Time API support

We're now confident that we can support the "old" JDBC date time types and the "new" JSR-310 Java Time API types in parallel in a single API. With this in place, jOOQ now includes a <javaTimeTypes/> code generator configuration, that replaces the "old" JDBC date time types in generated code.

The upcoming patch releases for jOOQ 3.9.x will further improve the situation for TIME[STAMP] WITH TIME ZONE types in databases that do support them. Your continued feedback in this area is very welcome.

New DDL statements and clauses

As in every release, we've added support for tons of new DDL statements and clauses, including:

Improved transactions API

The existing transactions API creates a new "scope" for each transaction, with a new, derived Configuration that contains that transactional scope (and a custom ConnectionProvider, not the user one). This was necessary from a design perspective to allow also for asynchronous transactions, which were introduced in jOOQ 3.8.

But if users can safely rely on ThreadLocal transaction semantics, the existing API that creates a new Configuration is too confusing. This is why jOOQ 3.9 now introduces the ThreadLocalTransactionProvider implementation that allows for the simpler transaction API to be used:

ctx.transaction(() -> { // Safe to re-use the "global" ctx here: ctx.insertInto(TABLE_A); ctx.update(TABLE_B); });

Besides, we now support a new TransactionListener SPI, which allows for hooking into the transaction lifecycle and execute stuff prior to beginning / committing or rolling back a transaction.

InformationSchema import and export

For a while now, we've supported the XMLDatabase in jooq-meta to generate code based on a SQL standard inspired XML format of your database schema:

This format is now also available to the jOOQ runtime library for importing and exporting schema meta information at runtime. In combination with the DSLContext.ddl() command, which was introduced in jOOQ 3.8, this makes for a very powerful schema import / export tool, which we're going to further improve in future versions.

Other minor improvements

Enjoy this exciting new milestone of jOOQ goodness!

Version 3.8.0 - May 03, 2016

Version 3.8 is a collection of very useful little features and improvements that have been sitting on our roadmap for a long time:

More Java 8 and asynchronicity support:

One of Java 8's interesting new features is the monadic support for asynchronous operation composition: CompletionStage. jOOQ now features a variety of methods like DSLContext.transactionAsync(), ResultQuery.fetchAsync(), Query.executeAsync(), but also DBMS_AQ.dequeueAsync(), which allow for leveraging this new Java 8 API. In order to inject custom Executors into jOOQ, a new ExecutorProvider SPI has been added, defaulting to an implementation that uses the ForkJoinPool.

Kotlin integration:

While we were working on jOOQ 3.8, Kotlin 1.0 was released, a very exciting new JVM language by JetBrains. We've started experimenting with the jOOQ / Kotlin integration, and we've already added new methods to leverage Kotlin's syntax sugar: Record.get() and Record.set() (as synonmys for getValue() and setValue())

With these new methods, it is possible to use Kotlin's square bracket syntax to access and modify fields in a record:

val rec = fetchOne(BOOK);
rec[BOOK.TITLE] = "10 SQL Tricks";

Stay tuned for more exciting Kotlin integration features in the near future!

The SQL Catalog type:

Most databases group objects in three hierarchy levels:

Specifically, in SQL Server, it is possible to select data from objects across several catalogs. jOOQ 3.8 finally formally supports the org.jooq.Catalog type both in the code generator as well as in the runtime.

New DDL features:

Schema migrations and initial database setups become an increasingly useful feature for many jOOQ users. In each release, we're adding support for additional statements and clauses of existing statements. jOOQ 3.8 now supports:

In addition to the above statements, we now allow for generating a set of DDL commands from a Schema or Table reference. This is very useful e.g. to recreate an Oracle schema on an H2 in-memory test database.

Code generator improvements:

Among many other improvements, we've simplified data type conversion and binding configurations. This essentially means: Much less XML for the same feature set!

Also, we've added additional flags that help maintaining more fine-grained control over which artefacts you really want to generate.

General notes:

We have once more postponed thorough JSR 310 (java.time) API support. This feature addition is one of our users' most wanted. We're aware of this and sorry we still couldn't deliver it. The risks of getting things wrong in terms of backwards-compatibility are high, and we don't want to get this wrong.

We have changed some internals, which may affect those of you who heavily extend jOOQ. In particular, the deprecated QueryPartInternal.toSQL() and bind() are no longer overridable. Please move your implementation to the accept() method, which was added in jOOQ 3.4. Our main benefit from this incompatible change is a substantial performance improvement, as we can now traverse the jOOQ QueryPart expression tree only once in order to collect the SQL string and the bind variables, which leads to a roughly 40% faster SQL rendering in benchmarks!

All in all, this is an exciting and big new release with tons of little new features that you won't want to miss once you have upgraded! Details below.

Version 3.7.0 - October 8, 2015

jOOQ 3.7 means Java 8

This release is great news for all of you working with Java 8. From jOOQ 3.7 onwards, we officially support Java 8 and its new APIs, including Stream, Optional, FunctionalInterface, as well as Java 7 features like AutoCloseable, SafeVarargs, and many more. The newly introduced Stream type is a very suitable match for a JDBC ResultSet, or a jOOQ Cursor, given that jOOQ already knows all the type information on individual streaming elements.

The new paradigm that has reached the JDK with Java 8 is functional programming. SQL and functional programming are a perfect match for data-driven algorithms that aim for transforming values with functions. We've blogged about this in the past:

If you're still on an older version of Java, we'll continue supporting Java 6 for our commercial customers, where we offer a Java 6 build and a Java 8 build.

jOOQ 3.7 means even more Big Data: Azure, Redshift, Vertica

SQL is the language of Big Data. When you have billions of rows in your table, a column store might seem more suitable than a row store ("NewSQL"), and with SQL, you can optimally query, transform, and aggregate your data. jOOQ fits this model perfectly!

jOOQ 3.6 added support for SAP HANA. jOOQ 3.7 now also adds support for SQL Azure, Redshift, and Vertica. With these additions, jOOQ is the best choic for your Java / Big Data application.

jOOQ 3.7 adds support for PostgreSQL 9.5

PostgreSQL is advancing fast. We've now added support for their next major release, which includes GROUPING SETS, UPSERT, SKIP LOCKED, ROW UPDATES and many other features

Other minor improvements

As always, the convenience of the jOOQ API has greatly increased, having added new overloads for popular methods as well as new access paths to existing functionality.

We've also added support for new JOIN types, such as LEFT SEMI JOIN (EXISTS), LEFT ANTI JOIN (NOT EXISTS), or MySQL's STRAIGHT_JOIN syntax.

Writing PL/SQL? Working with TABLE and OBJECT types has now gotten even simpler, and we've also added support for Oracle database links.

Version 3.6.0 - April 22, 2015

jOOQ goes Big Data with HANA

We've been working hard to add support for our 18th database dialect: SAP HANA, which is now officially supported by the jOOQ Enterprise Edition. HANA is SAP's excellent Big Data offering, supporting column stores combined with the power of SQL standard OLAP functionality, such as window functions. Integrate HANA into your Java or Scala applications with ease, using jOOQ!

Let's talk Scala

We're glad to welcome an increasingly big jOOQ-for-Scala community, an integration where jOOQ really shines thanks to some advanced Scala language features. In order to help you integrate even better, we've now added the new ScalaGenerator that generates jOOQ meta data classes in Scala, instead of Java

Integrate your code generation with JPA

In the previous release, we've implemented a new XMLDatabase that can load arbitrary XML schema metadata formats (via XSLT). We've taken this a step further using our new jOOQ-meta-extensions artefact, which hosts alternative meta data sources, such as your JPA-annotated classes, or ERD exports.

Speaking of XML

Our XML-in-the-database integration just got better! We're showing you in a couple of example Bindings how to get the most out of your vendor-specific data types, such as XML or JSON - which can be integrated into your jOOQ queries effortlessly!

Let's talk some more DDL

This release also adds support for a couple of additional DDL statements that help you standardise your schema migrations for our 18 RDBMS. The newly supported statements are:

SQL 2 jOOQ parser

One year ago, we've added the GUDU Software SQL 2 jOOQ parser with our deliverables. While we still believe that this is an excellent product, we have seen little demand from our users and customers - which is why we no longer ship the parser. You can still download it from GUDU Software.

MULTISET and nested records

While we have published (as promised) some API for nested record support, we're not quite convinced of its design yet. This is why this API is still marked as "experimental". Stay tuned for future releases when we'll take these advanced ORDBMS features one step further.

Tons of new convenience API and bugfixes

jOOQ wouldn't be jOOQ if it wasn't for the myriad convenience methods that make your SQL integration lives so much easier. We've listened to our users and customers and added another bulk of useful fetch(), execute(), map() and many other convenience methods that make your SQL integration fun and efficient.

Version 3.5.0 - November 21, 2014

The new Binding SPI

The main improvement of this exciting release is the new org.jooq.Binding SPI which can be used to fully control all aspects of a user-type's JDBC interaction. This goes much further than the existing org.jooq.Converter SPI that can be used to map standard JDBC types to user-types. With the new Binding SPI, virtually *ALL* vendor-specific types can be supported now. Examples include PostgreSQL's JSON or HSTORE types, or Oracle's DATE type - which is really incorrectly represented via java.sql.Timestamp, which is why we have retrofitted the existing <dateAsTimestamp/> feature to use such bindings, now.

Stored procedures are everywhere

Stored procedure support was generally improved in this release. This includes lots of new little features and conveniences for use with PL/SQL or Transact-SQL. For instance, jOOQ 3.5.0 now supports cross-schema references of PL/SQL OBJECT and TABLE types, which allows for binding directly to Oracle Spatial. We've blogged about this exciting improvement here:

And while we were at it, we've also added basic support for Oracle AQ, which integrates very nicely with our OBJECT type support!

In Transact-SQL and MySQL, we now support fetching arbitrary numbers of Results from stored procedures, and we've also implemented support for Firebird PSQL, including Firebird's very interesting syntax for table-valued functions.

By the way, we support user-defined aggregate functions for a variety of databases, including Oracle, PostgreSQL, and HSQLDB. Definitely something you should look into!

SQL improvements

In this release, we've finally got support for UNION, INTERSECT, and EXCEPT right with respect to nesting such operations, as well as combining them with ORDER BY and LIMIT .. OFFSET.

Let's talk some more DDL

We've continued to add support for DDL statements, including

We'll continue to add support for more DDL statements also in the future.

Code generation improvements

We've added support for the new XMLDatabase, a code generation configuration that allows to read meta information from XML formats, e.g. from a standard INFORMATION_SCHEMA.xml, or from an ERD's XML export format:

Future versions of jOOQ will include built-in support for a variety of XML formats.

We've had an awesome contribution by Etienne Studer from Gradleware to help our users integrate the jOOQ code generation with their Gradle builds.

Last but not least: Informix!

Oh, and by the way, we now also support IBM's second most popular database: Informix. Support for this database will be included in the jOOQ Enterprise Edition.

Version 3.4.0 - June 20, 2014

With this awesome new minor release version, we have finally started supporting a couple of very important aspects of the SQL language:

Common table expressions have been missing from jOOQ for a long time, and they're now finally part of our DSL API, both for recursive or regular usage.

Transactions are handled very nicely in JavaEE or through Spring TX. But if you're running small standalone programs with JDBC (and jOOQ) only, you have to resort to a transaction API that is no longer contemporay. With jOOQ 3.4, we're now shipping a Java-8 ready transaction API and a default implementation backed by JDBC transactions. Our manual also contains an example implementation that is backed by Spring TX. While we do not want to compete with popular transaction models, we do want to provide a simple, functional-interface oriented API to apply transactions in client code.

DDL is very hard to standardise across databases, and with jOOQ 3.4, we have now started adding type safe support for some DDL statements, including thus far:

We're going to be adding support for more DDL statements in jOOQ 3.5 as part of our more general DDL support strategy.

Apart from that, there is a tremendous amount of minor improvements. See below for details:

Version 3.3.0 - February 14, 2014

Finally, a new awesome jOOQ release is ready for you to download! The most important feature first:

The SEEK method

We've been blogging about keyset paging before:

Every SQL developer should have this tool in their toolchain. And now, with jOOQ 3.3, we natively support a synthetic SQL clause for you to express keyset paging very easily. jOOQ is the only database software out there to do so!

Gudu Software's SQL 2 jOOQ Parser

We're very happy to announce our collaboration with Gudu Software Ltd who have implemented a very powerful SQL parser and transformer for enterprise databases.

Together with Gudu Software, we have created an Open Source SQL 2 jOOQ parser that takes native SQL statements as input and generates jOOQ code as output.

The source code can be found here:

And our manual features a tutorial here:

We will ship, test and maintain this awesome new addition with our own deliverables. So far, SQL 2 jOOQ supports the MySQL and PostgreSQL dialects and it is in an alpha stadium. Please, community, provide as much feedback as possible to make this great tool rock even more!

Please take note of the fact that the sql2jooq library is Open Source, but it depends on the commercial gsp.jar parser, whose trial licensing terms can be seen here:

Great new SQL Feature Support

We've been looking around for SQL standard and vendor-specific features, such as the WINDOW clause (standard!), CROSS APPLY, OUTER APPLY, LATERAL join, DEFAULTs for inserts, and nice datetime arithmetic functions and emulations thereof.

As always, we've also blogged about all these features. See the following links for more details:

Formal Spring integration support

Spring is one of the most popular frameworks to handle transactions, and it does so very well. With the help of our community, we've established new standards and examples of how to get started very quickly with jOOQ and Spring. See the following resources for details:

Version 3.2.0 - October 9, 2013

With the new jOOQ 3.2, apart from introducing great new features, we are changing quite a few things on how we operate. At Data Geekery GmbH, we believe in Open Source. But we also believe in the creative power enabled by commercial software. This is why we have chosen to implement a dual-licensing strategy. Read more about this strategy here:

But jOOQ 3.2 also ships with great new features! They include:

A new RecordListener SPI which can be hooked into the Configuration in order to control ActiveRecord lifecycle events. This is very useful if you want to initialise some database records prior to inserting new data, or if you want to implement a central ID generation strategy, e.g. by generating Java UUIDs.

A new, experimental VisitListener SPI which can be hooked into the Configuration in order to control jOOQ's complete QueryPart rendering and variable binding lifecycle. Use this powerful SPI to perform custom SQL transformation, e.g. to implement shared-schema multi-tenancy, or a security layer centrally preventing access to certain data.

With this release, the Oracle and DB2 SQL dialect families will now be able to distinguish Oracle 10g, 11g, 12c features, as well as DB2 9.x, 10.x features. This is important as more and more databases start supporting the SQL standard OFFSET .. FETCH clause and other clauses that are emulated by jOOQ.

The code generator has experienced a lot of improvements, mainly including a new MatcherStrategy, which can be configured through Maven or XML code generator configurations. This generator strategy will allow you to implement several regular-expression based naming pattern replacements for all sorts of generated artefacts. This is extremely useful to generate table, record, pojo class name prefixes, suffixes in particular, or to just completely redesign the way the jOOQ code generator generates things.

Version 3.1.0 - June 30, 2013

With this release, MariaDB is now finally officially supported by jOOQ! MariaDB is a MySQL fork, which currently has a very similar feature set as its parent. As such forks tend to evolve into different directions very quickly, it makes sense to add formal support in jOOQ.

SQL Server 2012 is another SQL dialect that is now officially supported in jOOQ, allowing to make use of the newly supported ROWS UNBOUNDED PRECEDING and similar windowing clauses, as well as the long awaited OFFSET .. FETCH clause. From now on, jOOQ allows to define a super-set of SQL dialects by the same vendors with only subtle differences.

POJO mapping is taken to the next level. jOOQ opened up its internal DefaultRecordMapper providing useful Record to POJO mapping algorithms. But your custom domain model might be more complex. Instead of creating the next impedance mismatch, trying to foresee your own mapping algorithm needs, jOOQ allows you to inject a RecordMapperProvider into your Configuration, allowing to override record mapping with arbitrary behaviour.

This minor release is also a strong step forward towards a more unified SQL experience, where row value expression IN predicates and comparison predicates are simulated with an equivalent EXISTS predicate. See this blog post for more details:

Note, that for technical reasons, jOOQ 3.0.0 could not yet be integration tested with DB2, Ingres, and Sybase ASE. Consider using jOOQ 2.6, instead

Version 3.0.0 - April 28, 2013

This major release is a great move towards better integration of SQL as a language in Java. Unlike any other database abstraction framework, jOOQ now formally supports the notion of "row value expressions". The jOOQ API uses Xtend-generated API types from Row1 .. Row22, as well as Record1 .. Record22 to bring you even more compile-time typesafety on a record-level.

In SQL, you can typesafely write

  SELECT * FROM t WHERE (t.a, t.b) = (1, 2)
  SELECT * FROM t WHERE (t.a, t.b) OVERLAPS (date1, date2)
  SELECT * FROM t WHERE (t.a, t.b) IN (SELECT x, y FROM t2)
  UPDATE t SET (a, b) = (SELECT x, y FROM t2 WHERE ...)
  INSERT INTO t (a, b) VALUES (1, 2)

In jOOQ, you can now (also typesafely!) write

  select().from(t).where(row(t.a, t.b).eq(1, 2));
  // Type-check here: ----------------->  ^^^^
  select().from(t).where(row(t.a, t.b).overlaps(date1, date2));
  // Type-check here: ------------------------> ^^^^^^^^^^^^
  select().from(t).where(row(t.a, t.b).in(select(t2.x, t2.y).from(t2)));
  // Type-check here: -------------------------> ^^^^^^^^^^
  update(t).set(row(t.a, t.b), select(t2.x, t2.y).where(...));
  // Type-check here: --------------> ^^^^^^^^^^
  insertInto(t, t.a, t.b).values(1, 2);
  // Type-check here: ---------> ^^^^

This also applies for existing API, which doesn't involve row value expressions:

  // Type-check here: ---------------> ^^^^
  // Type-check here: -------------------> ^^^^
  // Type-check here: ---------------> ^^^^

And for UNIONs

  select(t1.a, t1.b).from(t1).union(select(t2.a, t2.b).from(t2));
  // Type-check here: -------------------> ^^^^^^^^^^

These type-checks are preformed by your Java compiler, considering the generic type information of your SQL statement's Record data types. These include:

The highest degree of typesafety was chosen to be 22, to match Scala's Tuple22, Product22 and Function22 types. Higher degree records are still supported by jOOQ, just without the additional typesafety.

This Record typesafety is applied to

Apart from this major improvement, there had been many minor changes throughout the jOOQ API. Here are some important ones:

As this is a major release, some backwards-incompatibilities were inevitable. For those users among you, migrating from jOOQ 2.x to 3.0, here are a couple of useful hints:

Note, that for technical reasons, jOOQ 3.0.0 could not yet be integration tested with DB2, Ingres, and Sybase ASE. Consider using jOOQ 2.6, instead

Note, that further code generation and model API improvements were postponed to a later release

Note, previous release candidates contained more features, improvements and bug fixes. See their respective sections for details.

#2410 Add some more API usage examples to the section about ResultSet fetching

Version 3.0.0 (RC1) - February 16, 2013

This major release is a great move towards better integration of SQL as a language in Java. Unlike any other database abstraction framework, jOOQ now formally supports the notion of "row value expressions". The jOOQ API uses Xtend-generated API types from Row1 .. Row22, as well as Record1 .. Record22 to bring you even more compile-time typesafety on a record-level.

See subsequent release candidates or release 3.0.0 for more information.

Version 2.6.0 - October 26, 2012

This release has a new main feature: the type-safe support for row value expressions also known as tuples - up to a degree of 8. The API is formed in a similar way as pre-existing tuple support in languages like C# or Scala.

jOOQ's Scala integration has also been improved through the new jOOQ-Scala module, which provides some useful implicit defs for operator overloading. Future versions of jOOQ-Scala may experiment with Scala 2.10's Macros

This release also ships with a lot of new deprecation to help you prepare for the upcoming major release.

Minor feature improvements include:

Version 2.4.0 - July 8, 2012

This release's main new feature is jOOQ's added convenience in Factory initialisation for those users who get their database connectivity through JDBC DataSources. If supplied with a DataSource, a jOOQ Factory will handle the Connection lifecycle internally, closing the Connection when no longer needed.

The H2 MERGE statement syntax is now supported and simulated in other databases, for those users that prefer its more intuitive syntax over the SQL standard.

The code generator now also allows for generating interfaces and DAOs per table. DAO generation was previous discussed on the user group and seen in a competitor product called OneWebSQL.

The jOOQ Console now supports breakpoints for even more effective SQL development

Version 2.3.0 - May 6, 2012

This is a minor feature increment release, featuring many useful API enhancements, some new functions, some new syntax support elements, improved source code generation and a lot of improvements on the jOOQ Console, thanks to Christopher Deckers.

The updated jOOQ Console now allows for filtering incoming statements directly on the server side, using regular expression filters on statement text and other features. These improvements are a part of a general strategy to introduce breakpoints and more sophisticated debugging capability to the jOOQ Console.

#1289 DefaultBindContext logs as Util.class
#1297 Compilation error in CUBRID generated artefacts referencing OBJECT types
#1298 Avoid source code generation errors when generating code for unknown, dialect-specific data types

Version 2.2.0 - April 09, 2012

Finally, jOOQ has added support for another database, and a very promising one, that is. is a surprisingly original mixture of a relational and object-oriented database where tables and classes are synonyms, so are records and instances. The CUBRID database has a high level of compatibility with MySQL and is aimed at MySQL users wanting more performance for their web applications. For details, see the slides here:

jOOQ is proud to have become a CUBRID partner, looking forward to further cooperation with CUBRID in the near future.

Apart from that, jOOQ now fully supports SQL standard INTERVAL data types. With JDBC and JPA lacking official support for this, jOOQ aims for becoming the tool of choice for vendor-specific date time arithmetic. True INTERVAL data type support is given in HSQLDB, Ingres, Oracle, Postgres databases. Besides that, CUBRID and MySQL support INTERVAL data type arguments in functions. In other dialects, jOOQ simulates DATEADD(), TIMESTAMPADD(), DATEDIFF(), TIMESTAMPDIFF().

For jOOQ's OLAP friends, there is now also support for the Oracle LISTAGG function (LIST() in Sybase, XMLAGG() in DB2, STRING_AGG() in Postgres, GROUP_CONCAT() in CUBRID, H2, HSQLDB, MySQL). LISTAGG is an "ordered aggregate function", meaning that the aggregation is done using a specific ordering. Keep an eye out for more such function support in future versions.

Features and improvements

#566 Add support for INTERVAL data types
#585 Add support for DATE, TIME and INTERVAL arithmetic
#1183 Add support for DEFAULT values in Oracle stored procedure parameters
#1243 Let generated POJOs (and Records) extend base classes and implement interfaces

#1274 Add support for the Oracle LISTAGG(...) WITHIN GROUP (ORDER BY ..) [ OVER (..) ] aggregate / analytic function
#1275 Simulate Sybase LIST() aggregate function using Oracle's LISTAGG() function
#1276 Simulate Oracle's LISTAGG() in DB2 using XMLAGG(), SUBSTR() and CONCAT()

API changes (backwards-compatible)

#1262 Pull up OracleFactory.prior() and other CONNECT BY related methods to Factory

Bug fixes

#1241 Wrong variable binding when comparing CHAR columns in Derby and DB2 without explicit casting to VARCHAR
#1244 Cannot override class name in GeneratorStrategy in Mode.POJO
#1248 Setting both <records>false</records> and <relations>true</relations> leads to compilation errors
#1256 Fixed code generation issue with H2 user defined functions returning VARCHAR
#1263 Pass fetchsizes <= 0 to the JDBC driver (for vendor- specific MySQL compatibility)
#1270 Most databases allow for multiple identical foreign keys. This leads to compilation errors in generated source code

Version 2.1.0 - March 18, 2012

With this version, jOOQ attempts to follow versioning rules imposed by semantic versioning: There will be 1 minor release per month, and a couple of patch releases per year, depending on popular demand

Version 2.0.5 - February 26, 2012

This release finally introduced basic runtime configuration features for the jOOQ Factory. This configuration now includes:

The runtime configuration is documented here:

The listener and tracing support has been requested by Christopher Deckers, a new jOOQ user who has had the courtesy to contribute the new jOOQ Console, which is documented here:

Apart from that, another long-requested feature is now fully implemented: The GeneratorStrategy, allowing for custom naming strategies in generated source code. This will allow for generating custom table / record class name prefixes / suffixes, as well as overriding the default behaviour for rendering UPPER, lower and CamelCase artefacts.

Version 2.0.1 - December 23, 2011

This is a maintenance release for jOOQ 2.0. The main improvements include

For more information about using jOOQ with Scala, see this blog post:

There is now also experimental support for a custom type mapping. This mapping allows to rewrite data types at code generation time as well as to specify custom enum data types (e.g. boolean Y/N). Not all integration tests run smoothly for custom data types, hence, this feature is not yet fully supported.

Features and improvements

#691 Add support for Oracle CURSOR REF IN / INOUT parameters

#988 Change Factory.field(String) to return Field<Object> instead of Field<?>
#999 Make MERGE's WHEN MATCHED .. and WHEN NOT MATCHED .. clauses optional
#1001 Identity.getField() should return TableField<R, T> instead of Field<T>
#1006 Add Factory.value(...) as a synonym for Factory.val(...) for increased Scala / Groovy compatibility

Bug fixes

#973 EnumType renders name() instead of getLiteral() in formatXXX() methods
#977 EnumType renders name() instead of getLiteral() in Convert.convert() method
#979 Record.from() sets all changed flags to true. That's not necessarily correct in the event of storing the record back to the DB
#985 AbstractRecord.equals() does not correctly compare arrays. Compare them using Arrays.asList()
#986 Postgres / DB2 / Sybase ASE foreign-key namespace is unique-per-table. jOOQ forces all foreign keys from all tables into the same namespace
#990 Problems when encoding arbitrary byte[] as String(byte[]) in inlined SQL. This can cause issues when DEBUG-level logging is activated
#995 Routines don't respect SchemaMapping - Github issue #8
#1002 TableRecord.storeUsing() doesn't update IDENTITY column values, if the column is not part of the main unique key
#1003 Sybase / SQL Server / MySQL / Ingres / H2 / Derby's INSERT .. RETURNING simulation returns null if a table has an IDENTITY column, but no primary/unique key
#1005 The INSERT INTO .. VALUES .. syntax may cause type-safety issues in some databases. VALUES should be converted before binding

Test cases

#984 Detach IDENTITY column tests from UNIQUE KEY tests, create a dedicated test suite instead

Version 2.0.0 - November 25, 2011

This release is a fresh start in many areas of jOOQ, adressing issues that have been requested by users for a long time. These release notes docment the most important changes, a detailed upgrade guide, as well as the detailed list of improvements.

Most important changes

NAME.replace(" ", "_").trim()

you will now write (just as in SQL):

trim(replace(NAME, " ", "_"))

Using static imports of Factory.*, jOOQ makes SQL look even more like SQL. The current "postfix notation" is maintained for backwards compatibility.

Table<TRecord> parent ="parent");
Table<TRecord> child  ="child");
Condition join =

You can now write:

T parent ="parent");
T child  ="child");
Condition join = parent.ID.equal(child.PARENT_ID)

Of course, the existing notation still works


This makes for a more concise API, especially when considering future extensions, such as Oracle's KEEP (DENSE_RANK FIRST...) syntax.

Upgrade instructions:

Various of the above changes are incompatible with jOOQ 1.x. In order to upgrade, please be aware of the following pitfalls:

Should these incompatibilities be too significant for your project, you can still stay on the 1.x branch, which will be maintained for a while. Be aware that upgrading might be more difficult, later, though.

Bug fixes

#925 SelectConditionStep should extend SelectConnectByStep, not SelectGroupByStep
#926 AbstractRecord.into() fails to convert java.sql.Date into java.util.Date
#937 In the event of name clash (same name for table and field) generated code has errors

#948 Always set the changed flag to true in Record.setValue()
#951 Empty Password for jooq-codegen-maven causes NPE

Version 1.6.9 - November 7, 2011

This is a maintenance release for the 1.x branch. Developments on this branch will stop after version 1.6.9. Only important bug fixes are merged to this branch. Developments for release 2.0 have started.

The most important functionality in release 1.6.9 is the newly added support for JDBC batch operations. You can now batch execute several queries.

See the official blog for more information:

Features and improvements

#621 Add support for JDBC batch operations
#794 Add support for ORDER BY [int value] in order to reference a column index for sorting
#882 Optimise Field.isTrue() and isFalse(). Take Field's data type into consideration.
#885 Add support for INSERT INTO .. VALUES (..) syntax, omitting explicit field declarations
#887 Add <E> List<E> Cursor.fetchInto(Class<E>)

Bug fixes

#748 H2 regression in 1.3.158 regarding stored functions, which return a ResultSet (this was fixed in H2)
#859 Derby casting of numeric types to BOOLEAN doesn't work
#886 Regression in date extract function when used in a subselect
#888 Derby casting of VARCHAR to FLOAT (and similar) doesn't work

Version 1.6.8 - October 22, 2011

The main improvement of this release is the re-design of the stored procedure / function API. With 12 supported RDBMS, which all have their own idea about what is a stored procedure and what is a stored function, it has proven to be a better design, to unite them in one single type: org.jooq.Routine. A routine can have a return value as well as OUT parameters. It can be embedded in SQL and used as a field or a table.

This means, you will need to re-generate your database schema, when upgrading to jOOQ 1.6.8. After re-generation, you'll need to fix your client code. These are the package changes:

Oracle generated packages are not re-located. With these improvements, using stored procedures and functions becomes even more reliable, especially when cursor types are involved. Read more about the rationale behind this change:

Apart from that, important improvements have been made in the area of plain SQL tables. Also, consider a demo integration of jOOQ with Google Cloud SQL:

Features and improvements

#271 Don't pre-fetch table meta data when selecting from plain SQL tables
#489 Add support for SELECT * (i.e. render SELECT * where applicable)
#596 Add support for VARIANCE() and STDDEV() OVER() window functions
#608 Add jOOQ version number in generated source code
#670 Add more Javadoc to functions
#692 Add support for ResultSet type returned from HSQLDB stored functions
#850 Use as URL for the @Generated annotation
#854 Add convenience methods Fields.isTrue(), isFalse() for conversion of "Y", "YES", "1", "true", "on", etc into a boolean condition
#870 Add support for MEDIAN aggregate function
#872 Add support for STDDEV_POP(), STDDEV_SAMP(), VAR_POP(), VAR_SAMP() aggregate functions
#874 Reduce the number of internal classes for dialect-specific function aliases
#878 Implement DataType.equals() and hashCode()

API changes (backwards-compatible)

#851 Change Field.{sortAsc|sortDesc}(List<T> sortList) into Field.{sortAsc|sortDesc}(Collection<T> sortList)

API changes (backwards-incompatible)

#848 Purge deprecated API - Prior to 1.6.1
#849 Replace Cursor.fetchResult() by Cursor.fetch()
#852 Review stored procedures / functions concept. Merge them all into a single "Routine" type

Bug fixes

#756 Error when aliasing HSQLDB and Postgres unnested tables
#761 Exception when TRACE logging execution with plain SQL tables involved
#773 Execute standalone stored functions as CallableStatement to prevent issues with transactions
#847 Query.getSQL() doesn't render dialect-specific SQL when Query is constructed using the fluent API
#853 DB2 generated convenience methods for stored functions have unstable ordering
#857 Derby casting of numeric types to String / VARCHAR does not work
#858 SQLDataType.getSQLDataType() should return itself, instead of null
#860 SQLite CEIL function is incorrectly simulated. CEIL(2.0) returns 3.0 instead of 2.0
#861 Field.replace(String) generates bad SQL for various RDBMS. Field.replace(String, String) works, though
#863 Ingres integration generates illegal SQL when selecting things like SELECT 1 WHERE 1 = 1
#866 Sybase ASE Field.replace(String) function incorrectly removes the argument string
#873 Error when selecting two times the same aggregate field
#877 Compilation error in generated source code when a table without a primary key has an identity column
#879 Add Google Cloud SQL Example
#880 Query.getSQL() does not consider SchemaMapping

Test cases

#811 Loader integration tests fail for SQLite
#812 CSV Loader test leaves Postgres JDBC connection in an inconsistent transactional state on error
#856 Add integration tests for Field.abs()
#865 Add integration tests for Field.ascii()
#867 Add integration tests for Field.sum(), avg(), max(), min()
#881 Re-design H2 stored functions to be pre-compiled, in order to speed up integration tests

Version 1.6.7 - September 25, 2011

This release coincides with the launch of the new website at Hence, it ships with little additions to the deliverable itself.

Apart from new convenience methods, the main addition is a Maven plugin for jooq-codegen contributed by Sander Plas.

Features and improvements

#797 Create Maven plugin for source code generation
#825 Add List<Result<Record>> Factory.fetchMany(String) to allow for fetching several result sets from stored procedures, such as Sybase ASE's "sp_help"
#838 Implement MetaDataFieldProvider.toString()
#841 Add <T> List<T> Result.getValues(Field<?>, Class<T>)
#842 Add Query.getBindValues() method to allow for extracting bind values in the correct order
#843 Add Factory.fetch(ResultSet) to transform a JDBC ResultSet into a jOOQ Result

API changes (backwards-compatible)

#837 Avoid final keyword on Object methods, such as .equals(), .hashCode(), etc

Bug fixes

#836 Bad syntax when selecting from aliased plain SQL tables
#839 Boolean conversion in getValueAsBoolean() should trim String values first
#840 Numeric conversions in getValueAsXXX() should trim String values first
#844 NullPointerException when selecting a column from a Result, that does not exist

Version 1.6.6 - September 11, 2011

Finally, support for another RDBMS has been added. Sybase's other important product Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (or simply Sybase ASE) is now officially supported by jOOQ

Apart from this, there had been important improvements with the recently added INSERT .. RETURNING clause, as well as some fixes related to DECIMAL / NUMERIC data types

Features and improvements

#796 Complete missing public org.jooq.impl Javadoc
#800 Add support for Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise
#808 Add support for INSERT .. RETURNING for Ingres
#809 Add support for INSERT .. RETURNING for Sybase SQL Anywhere using SELECT @@identity
#810 Add support for INSERT .. RETURNING for SQLite using last_inserted_rowid()
#813 Add DSL support for INSERT .. RETURNING
#814 Change TableRecord to reload its trigger-initialised main key in Oracle and other RDBMS that don't support IDENTITY columns
#818 Add SQLiteFactory.rowid()
#819 Support SQLite AUTOINCREMENT columns as IDENTITY
#820 Add Factory.fetchOne(String) for executing plain SQL queries that return single records
#826 Allow for returning several records in the INSERT .. RETURNING clause. This now works for DB2, HSQLDB, MySQL, and Postgres
#827 Support Sybase SQL Anywhere's TOP n START AT m clause instead of simulating it with nested SELECT's

API changes (previous API now deprecated)

#817 Deprecate Factory.lastID(Identity)

Bug fixes

#815 SQL Server fetching of IDENTITY value is broken
#821 Optimise ResultQuery.fetchAny() executing fetchLazy() internally, and only fetching one record from the cursor
#822 Let Constant cast to more precise NUMERIC/DECIMAL types in those RDBMS where casting is necessary
#823 Cannot bind SQLite BigDecimal, BigInteger types - bind them as String instead
#824 BigInteger values cannot be bound in DB2, Derby
#828 Document inefficient implementation for GREATEST and LEAST in some RDBMS

Version 1.6.5 - August 28, 2011

This release finally adds a loader for CSV data to jOOQ. You can now load CSV data using a simple fluent API, configuring error handling, duplicate behaviour and transaction handling, as well as various CSV parameters.

This release also changes the way generated keys are retrieved after INSERT's. Instead of (potentially inconsistently) running SELECT MAX(pk) immediately after the INSERT, Postgres' INSERT.. RETURNING clause is used (or simulated), in a single statement.

Features and improvements

#784 Add Result.exportXML() to retrieve a DOM document similar to that of .formatXML()
#792 Add support for loading of CSV data into tables
#795 Add <T> List<T> fetch(int, Class<T>) and fetch(String, Class<T>) convenience methods
#803 Add support for INSERT .. RETURNING or simulate it where not available
#805 Add <T> T[] fetchArray(int, Class<T>) and fetchArray(String, Class<T>) convenience methods
#806 Add <T> T fetchOne(int, Class<T>) and fetchOne(String, Class<T>) convenience methods

Bug fixes

#798 Oracle IN (...) clause with more than 1000 arguments does not work
#802 Use "INSERT .. RETURNING" instead of "SELECT MAX(pk)" to retrieve the primary key of a new record

Version 1.6.4 - August 07, 2011

This release ships with a couple of useful concepts inspired by other frameworks. These are:

Apart from these changes and some bugfixes, the internal API has been completely re-designed. The idea here is that query rendering and variable binding are even faster (less String objects), more extensible and more accurate. This is a pre- requisite for many future developments with even more complex SQL statements, such as for instance CTE's (Common Table Expressions)

Features and improvements

#137 Add support for asynchronous query execution using FutureResult<R> ResultQuery.fetchLater() similar to Avaje Ebean
#198 Add SELECT INTO functionality into POJO's using <T> T ResultQuery.fetchInto(Class<T>) similar to JPA CriteriaQuery
#728 Add .fetchInto(RecordHandler<R>) to ResultQuery, Result, and Cursor to allow for callbacks similar to Spring's JdbcTemplate/Ollin Framework
#774 Add more TRACE logging to .fetchLazy()
#777 CURSOR: Add function alias: UNNEST for TABLE
#781 Add E function (Euler number)
#782 Add <T> T Record.getValue(..., Class<? extends T>) methods for convenient type conversion
#785 Allow for storing TableRecord with a provided Field<?>[] indicating the primary key
#786 Document thread-safety facts in Factory Javadoc
#788 Add Key.getFieldsArray() convenience method
#793 Add support for Oracle's SYS_CONNECT_BY_PATH function

API changes (backwards-incompatible)

#758 Change internal QueryPart rendering and binding API to use Configuration and Context as callback parameters. If you use CustomField or CustomCondition, please correct your implementations accordingly. Other parts of the API should not be affected
#778 Purge deprecated API, deprecation prior to jOOQ 1.5.7
#790 Purge deprecated generated code, deprecation prior to jOOQ 1.5.7

API changes (previous API now deprecated)

#776 Deprecate QueryPart.getSQL(), add Query.getSQL()
#789 Deprecate Record constructors with Configuration parameter

Test cases

#636 Add integration tests for more advanced CONNECT BY example
#772 Add integration tests for selecting cartesian products (several tables in FROM clause)

Bug fixes

#730 Sybase cannot bind null values in plain SQL
#759 Omit the TOP 100 PERCENT clause in SQL Server ordered top-level queries
#767 An empty Java package is generated for PL/SQL packages containing underscores
#771 Some exotic literals are not properly escaped with quotes yet, e.g. UDT identifiers, VARRAY types, etc.
#775 Automatic re-attaching after deserialisation does not work when used with .fetchLazy()
#787 The UpdatableRecord's internal changed flags are not updated after INSERTs / UPDATEs

Version 1.6.3 - July 31, 2011

This is mainly a maintenance release with lots of bugfixes, mostly around code generation, plain SQL tables, and data types. Please note that generated source code may contain incompatible changes due to #639 (see below for details)!

Apart from that, project CURSOR is advancing and it is now possible to unnest arrays into tables. See this article for details about where jOOQ is heading with project CURSOR:

Features and improvements

#752 CURSOR: Add support for selecting from ARRAY types
#762 Use H2's native support of NVL, instead of COALESCE
#764 CURSOR: Add support for selecting from ARRAY types returned from stored functions

API changes (backwards-incompatible)

#639 Map DECIMAL(n, 0) and NUMBER/NUMERIC(n, 0) data types to Byte/Short/Integer/Long/BigInteger instead of BigDecimal in generated source code. Re-generated code will not be compatible!

API changes (previous API now deprecated)

#731 Inconsistent API with Field.lessOrEqualToXXX(). Removed "To" from method name
#757 Deprecate Factory.constant() methods

Test cases

#731 Add missing integration tests for equalAll(), equalSome() and similar methods
#747 Upgrade H2 to 1.3.158

Bug fixes

#739 Postgres navigator methods and keys are not re-generated in the same order
#740 Formatting is broken on Result.format() with some special newline characters
#743 Make SQL Server INFORMATION_SCHEMA independent from HSQLDB again, to prevent incompatibility issues
#744 Ingres REAL and FLOAT4 types are generated as FLOAT/FLOAT8 which maps to java.lang.Double, instead of java.lang.Float
#753 Postgres error when binding array that contains null values
#755 NullPointerException when converting an array containing a null value
#766 Bad decoding of JDBC Types BIGINT (to BigInteger instead of Long) and REAL (to BigDecimal instead of Float) when plain SQL tables are involved

Version 1.6.2 - July 10, 2011

This release mainly introduces three new projects.

Project CURSOR where jOOQ finally supports various RDBMS's TABLE, CURSOR, and REF CURSOR data types. This is especially useful when those types are returned from stored procedures and functions. Cursors are simply mapped to jOOQ Result<Record> types and can thus be used like regular table results

Project EXPORT aims at exporting data from the database in various serialisable formats, such as XML, CSV, HTML, Text, JSON. This project will be continued in the future, to also deserialise from (some of) these data streams. This will allow for easy transport of jOOQ Result<?> types over the net.

Project CODEGEN has finally been started. Many improvements suggested by jOOQ users will be implemented in the next releases. In this release, important fixes have been made to prevent compilation errors in generated artefacts.

Features and improvements

#61 EXPORT: Add Result.formatXML()
#166 CURSOR: Add support for ResultSet type returned from Oracle stored procedures / functions

#729 DB2, Derby, Ingres, Oracle cannot bind null values in plain SQL

Version 1.6.1 - June 19, 2011

In this release, the PORTABILITY project has been implemented. Finally, the SQLDialect has been removed from most generated artefacts (Schema, Table, Field, Sequence, etc). Also, the constructing Factory is not referenced by its created QueryParts anymore, unless this is really necessary (Query objects, UDT's, ARRAY types). This leads to higher compatibility between schemata of different databases, e.g. if users want to use an HSQLDB development and Oracle productive database.

Unfortunately, this means that the way stored procedures are called had to be changed. This is an API break that could not be avoided. The pre-1.6.1 StoredObject.execute(Connection) method is deprecated and will be removed in the future. It has been replaced by StoredObject.execute(Configuration)

In addition to this project, many more window functions are now supported, as well as the Oracle-specific CONNECT BY clause for recursive queries.


#351 Add support for Oracle ROWID data type
#452 PORTABILITY: Create a super-set of RDBMS data types
#453 PORTABILITY: Don't create dialect-specific QueryParts
#455 Add support for the Oracle CONNECT BY clause
#587 Add optional OFFSET clause to form LIMIT .. OFFSET constructs
#589 Add extended FOR UDPATE [OF ...] [{WAIT n | NOWAIT | SKIP LOCKED }] support
#591 Add support for LEAD() OVER() and LAG() OVER() window functions
#592 Add support for the CUME_DIST() OVER() window function
#601 Add Factory.literal() convenience methods
#602 Add Factory.val() methods to decrease .constant() verbosity
#604 Add support for RESPECT NULLS clause in some window functions
#605 Add Factory.use(String) for non-generated schemata
#613 Add PI function
#616 Add Factory.two() literal convenience method
#630 Add support for Oracle CONNECT BY pseudo-columns LEVEL, CONNECT_BY_ISCYCLE, CONNECT_BY_ISLEAF

API changes

This version ships with lots of new functionality. Finally, the DSL-style API has been extended to CRUD operations (INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE)! Also, support for the TRUNCATE TABLE statement has been added.

The most important new features include the support for SQL:2003 standard window functions, which are available in most major RDBMS. Additionally, basic function support has been widely extended.

Version 1.5.8 - April 29, 2011

Finally, jOOQ now supports two important new RDBMS: SQL Server and Sybase!

Apart from this great enhancement, there is now also full support for the non-SQL standard LIMIT clause, even in dialects where the LIMIT clause is not supported natively (especially Oracle, but also DB2, SQL Server and Sybase, which have limitations). jOOQ simulates LIMITs by rendering nested selects filtering on ROWNUM (Oracle) or on ROW_NUMBER() (DB2, SQL Server and Sybase).

Other interesting additions are an increasing support for native mathematical functions. More function support will be added in future versions.


#16 Added support for SQL Server
#21 Uniform implementation of the LIMIT clause. Implemented LIMIT clause simulation through analytic functions, where LIMIT is not supported natively
#97 Added support for Sybase
#418 Measure time of various steps in source code generation

#438 Added floor and ceil functions
#439 Added support for mathematical functions (logarithms, exponentials, sqrt)
#447 Enhanced Field.add() and Field.subtract() to work for date time fields, also

API changes

#428 Created new Maven artefact jooq-meta to cleanly separate database meta-data navigation from code generation
#458 Decreased DSL verbosity for arithmetic operations and for ordering

Bug fixes

#417 Restored warning when unknown column type is encountered in source code generation
#419 Corrected misleading Select.fetchOne(...) Javadoc
#421 Optimised AbstractRecord's memory consumption
#448 Corrected some Javadoc @see links
#449 Changed Field.concatenate() to accept Field<?> parameters to avoid generic varargs warnings

Version 1.5.7 - April 17, 2011

This is the first release built with support of Maven thanks to the help of some jOOQ users!

The main new features in this release are the improved support for serialisation/deserialisation of jOOQ objects through use of the newly introduced "Attachable" interface.

If using log4j or the newly supported slf4j logging framework in debug/trace mode, there is the possibility to log query building/execution time statistics.

Apart from these new features, fixes were mainly done in the fields of type casting, HSQLDB 2.1 upgrade support, stored procedures with OUT, IN/OUT parameters. Please upgrade, if you are using any of those features.

If you extend jOOQ as a base implementation for source code generation, be aware of the fact, that the jOOQ-codegen is currently undergoing major changes. Expect the code generation API to stabilise again in one of the next releases.


#104 Added maven dependency
#248 Integrate UDT types with ARRAYs
#295 Allow for attaching/detaching UpdatableRecords to/from Configurations
#359 Added statistics measurement to Query execution for debug log level

Version 1.5.6 - March 31, 2011

This release consists mainly of code generation bug fixes and minor API improvements and enhancements.

The most important improvement is ticket #90, by which lazy fetching and iteration over data is now supported. jOOQ lets you keep a reference to a Cursor that has an open JDBC ResultSet, to fetch data from on-the-fly.

A few major code generation bugs were reported where the generated code may cause ambiguity due to an inconsistent API. This means that you will have to re-generate your schema after upgrading to version 1.5.6. Some of your code may not compile anymore, after this upgrade.


#90 Added possibility for lazy fetching of data
#208 Added convenience methods for direct invocation of sequences' currval() and nextval() attributes
#212 Created one factory per dialect for better separation of dialect-specific support
#213 Generate a factory for each schema

#274 Integrate H2 ARRAY types with stored procedures
#292 Documented usage of log4j and java.util.logging
#306 Added support for the NULLIF function
#319 Added Field.between(Field<T>, Field<T>) method
#320 Added trace logging for variable binding and SQL generation methods
#323 Added<?>...) method
#325 Include release version number in delivered .jar files
#328 Improved configuration setup documentation page
#333 Let Result implement Serializable
#334 Added fetchMap() convenience methods
#335 Added more functions and aggregate functions examples to documentation
#338 Visually improve code generation logging
#339 Removed skipping of unreferenced UDT's, ENUM's and ARRAY's
#342 Improved generated referential code by using fetch() and fetchOne() API
#356 Let and delete() return an int to indicate whether the record was actually modified

API changes

#233 Allow for joining TableLike instead of Table
#337 Added generic type <R extends TableRecord<R>> to InsertSelectQuery
#341 Fixed API flaw where SelectOnConditionStep.and() methods and similar ones returned SelectConditionStep, instead of SelectOnConditionStep


#69 Corrected referential code generation for foreign keys that reference non-primary unique keys
#85 Corrected referential code generation for multi-field foreign keys
#121 Covered more Factory.executeXXX() methods with integration tests
#318 Fixed NullPointerException when executing SELECT * from aliased tables
#321 BetweenCondition does not bind left hand side Field correctly
#322 InCondition does not bind left hand side Field correctly
#326 Avoid method overloading where binding <T> to Object may lead to compile-time ambiguities (with javac)
#343 Add more foreign key navigation method integration tests
#347 Add explicit integration tests for schema artefacts excluded from code generation
#350 Disambiguate navigation methods if several foreign keys reference the same entity
#352 Disambiguate navigation methods if a table ending on S references itself
#353 Added integration test for compilation of generated artefacts with javac (as opposed to the Eclipse compiler)
#355 Error when storing an UpdatableRecord that has no changed values

Version - March 15, 2011

A critical bug was reported from the 1.5 release stream where stored functions did not render their parameters in correct order


#302 Map Oracle's NUMBER data type to java.lang.Number in stored procedures, stored functions


#317 StoredFunctionImpl.asField() renders parameters in wrong order

Version - March 13, 2011

In version 1.5.5, there was a fatal bug breaking Derby source code generation. Only the Derby dialect is affected. Please update immediately, if you are using jOOQ's Derby integration


#315 Generated master data records are not sorted by PK
#316 Derby code generation fatally broken

Version 1.5.5 - March 12, 2011

This version is released early as there are some important bugfixes. Additional improvements include:


#304 Add support for Oracle NVL function
#305 Add support for COALESCE function
#308 Add support for Oracle NVL2 function
#311 Add support for Oracle DECODE function

#312 Fixed issue where Field.equal(...) methods rendered unexpected SQL when rhs null is cast to a type
#313 Fixed Derby cast type for VARCHAR
#304 Let the DerbyDataType default for java.lang.String be VARCHAR, not LONG VARCHAR

Version 1.5.4 - March 04, 2011

Feature #243 required a minor API change in the base classes of generated source code. This means you have to re-generate all your jOOQ artifacts in order to migrate to 1.5.4. The artifacts themselves should be regenerated in a compatible way, such that your client code should not be affected. If this is not the case, please report a ticket here:

Apart from the Derby RDMBS and some new data type support, there have been many new convenience methods added all over the API. For instance, if type-safety is not really a requirement, there are lots of possibilities to use plain SQL directly in the DSL. In that case, data can be accessed from Record, Results, not only through Field<?>, but also through field names or indexes.

Check out the updated documentation (soon) here:


#95 Support for the Derby RDMBS
#163 Add support for JDBC type ARRAY (with Postgres)
#209 Add support for DB2 sequences
#210 Add support for H2 sequences
