Ceylon + jOOQ example

This sample project shows how you can use jOOQ in your Ceylon project. It illustrates a blog article I wrote.


To compile and run the sample project, you'll need:

To develop the sample project in an IDE, install Ceylon IDE for IntelliJ or Eclipse.

Project structure

jOOQ's code generator was used to create a Java model representing all the tables. The model was generated into the Ceylon module gen.example.jooq in the gen-source directory.

The blog article shows a sample configuration that can be used to regenerate the model. Don't forget to add jooq-3.9.1.jar, jooq-meta-3.9.1.jar, jooq-codegen-3.9.1.jar, and a MySQL JDBC driver to the classpath when invoking org.jooq.util.GenerationTool.

The actual example module example.jooq is located in the directory source/. It uses jOOQ's generated classes to query the sakila database, then prints the results.

Setting up the sample database

The sample project uses the standard example MySQL database named sakila. You can create it using these SQL files, by following these instructions.

Building and running

Compile the code by typing:

ceylon compile

Next, make sure that the MySQL server is running, and run the example with:

ceylon run example.jooq

Building and running a fat jar

To assemble a "fat" jar archive containing the example module and its dependencies, type:

ceylon fat-jar example.jooq

Then run it using:

java -jar example.jooq-1.0.0.jar

Building and running a Ceylon assembly

To create a Ceylon assembly with the example module and its dependencies, type:

ceylon assemble example.jooq

Then run it using:

ceylon run --flat-classpath --assembly=example.jooq-1.0.0.cas
