gradle-jooq-plugin

The work on this software project is in no way associated with my employer nor with the role I'm having at my employer. Any requests for changes will be decided upon exclusively by myself based on my personal preferences. I maintain this project as much or as little as my spare time permits.

Overview

Gradle plugin that integrates the jOOQ code generation tool.

For each named jOOQ configuration declared in the build, the plugin adds a task to generate the jOOQ sources from the specified database schema and includes the generated Java sources in the matching source set, if existing. The code generation tasks participate in task configuration avoidance, in build configuration caching, in incremental builds, and in task output caching. The plugin can be applied on both Java projects and Android projects.

You can find more details about the actual jOOQ source code generation in the jOOQ documentation.

The jOOQ plugin is hosted on the Gradle Plugin Portal.

Functionality

The following functionality is provided by the jOOQ plugin:

  • Generate Java sources from a given database schema
  • Add the generated Java sources to the name-matching source set, if existing
  • Wire task dependencies such that the Java sources are generated before the Java compile task of the name-matching source set compiles them, if existing
  • Provide a configuration option to suppress automatic task wiring between the Java compile task and the jOOQ source generation task

The following Gradle configuration changes are contributed by the jOOQ plugin:

  • Add the org.jooq:jooq-codegen dependency needed to execute the jOOQ code generation tool to the new jooqGenerate configuration
  • Add the org.jooq:jooq dependency to the name-matching implementation configuration to successfully compile the Java sources generated from the database schema
  • Use the customizable jOOQ version across all resolved org.jooq*:jooq* dependencies

The following Gradle features are supported by the jOOQ plugin:

  • JooqGenerate task instances participate in task configuration avoidance
  • JooqGenerate task instances participate in configuration caching
  • JooqGenerate task instances participate in incremental builds (if the task gets explicitly marked as all inputs being declared)
  • JooqGenerate task instances participate in task output caching (if the task gets explicitly marked as cacheable)

See the Migration section on how to migrate your build from older to newer jOOQ plugin versions.

Configuration

Applying the plugin

Apply the nu.studer.jooq plugin to your Gradle project.

Gradle Groovy DSL

plugins {
    id 'nu.studer.jooq' version '6.0.1'
}

Gradle Kotlin DSL

plugins {
    id("nu.studer.jooq") version "6.0.1"
}

Adding the database driver

Add the database driver of the database that the jOOQ code generation tool will introspect to the jooqGenerator configuration. This ensures that the database driver is on the classpath when the jOOQ code generation tool is executed. Optionally, you can add additional dependencies that are required to run the jOOQ code generation tool.

Gradle Groovy DSL

dependencies {
    jooqGenerator 'org.postgresql:postgresql:42.2.14'
}

Gradle Kotlin DSL

dependencies {
    jooqGenerator("org.postgresql:postgresql:42.2.14")
}

Specifying the jOOQ version and edition

Specify the version and edition that should be applied to all jOOQ dependencies that are declared in your project either explicitly or pulled in transitively.

Note that the org.jooq:jooq dependency of the specified version and edition is automatically added to the implementation configuration of the source set that matches the name of the declared jOOQ configuration.

Gradle Groovy DSL

jooq {
  version = '3.15.1'  // the default (can be omitted)
  edition = nu.studer.gradle.jooq.JooqEdition.OSS  // the default (can be omitted)
}

Gradle Kotlin DSL

jooq {
  version.set("3.15.1")  // the default (can be omitted)
  edition.set(nu.studer.gradle.jooq.JooqEdition.OSS)  // the default (can be omitted)
}

Enforcing the jOOQ configuration XML schema version

Enforce a certain version of the jOOQ configuration XML schema by declaring what version of the jOOQ code generation tool to make available to the jOOQ plugin at configuration time, i.e. in the DSL of the jOOQ plugin.

Gradle Groovy DSL

buildscript {
    configurations['classpath'].resolutionStrategy.eachDependency {
        if (requested.group == 'org.jooq') {
            useVersion '3.12.4'
        }
    }
}

Gradle Kotlin DSL

buildscript {
    configurations["classpath"].resolutionStrategy.eachDependency {
        if (requested.group == "org.jooq") {
            useVersion("3.12.4")
        }
    }
}

Configuring the jOOQ generation tool

Configure the jOOQ generation tool via jooq extension, made available by the jOOQ plugin. The full set of configuration options when using jOOQ 3.13.x can be seen on the jOOQ generation tool's Configuration class, or on the jOOQ XSD.

By default, the generated sources are written to <projectDir>/build/generated-src/jooq/<configurationName>. The target directory can be changed by explicitly setting the directory attribute of the target configuration of the generator configuration.

Gradle Groovy DSL

import org.jooq.meta.jaxb.Logging

jooq {
    version = '3.15.1'  // default (can be omitted)
    edition = nu.studer.gradle.jooq.JooqEdition.OSS  // default (can be omitted)

    configurations {
        main {  // name of the jOOQ configuration
            generateSchemaSourceOnCompilation = true  // default (can be omitted)

Configuring the jOOQ generation task to participate in incremental builds

If you configure the state of the database schema from which to derive the jOOQ sources as an input to the jOOQ task, you can mark the jOOQ task as having all its inputs declared by setting the allInputsDeclared task property to true. The jOOQ task will then participate in Gradle's incremental build feature. The allInputsDeclared task property is false by default.

See here for a complete example on how to enable participation in incremental build and build caching.

Gradle Groovy DSL

    tasks.named('generateJooq').configure { allInputsDeclared = true }

Gradle Kotlin DSL

    tasks.named<nu.studer.gradle.jooq.JooqGenerate>("generateJooq") { allInputsDeclared.set(true) }

Avoiding configuration pitfalls

Synchronizing the jOOQ version between the Spring Boot Gradle plugin and the jOOQ Gradle plugin

It is advisable that the jOOQ Gradle plugin and the Spring Boot Gradle plugin are configured to use the same version of jOOQ.

If you want the Spring Boot plugin to pull in the same version of jOOQ as defined by the jOOQ plugin, you have to explicitly set ext['jooq.version'] = jooq.version.get().

The other way around, if you want the jOOQ plugin to pull in the same version of jOOQ as defined by the Spring Boot plugin, you have to explicitly set jooq.version = dependencyManagement.importedProperties['jooq.version'].

Generating sources into shared folders, e.g. src/main/java

My recommendation is to generate the jOOQ sources into a distinct folder, e.g. src/generated/jooq or build/generated-src/jooq (default). This avoids overlapping outputs, and it also keeps the door open to let Gradle cache the generated sources which can be a significant build performance gain. The rationale is explained very well in the Build Cache User Guide.

Configuring a sequence of elements using the Gradle Groovy DSL

Resemblance of the jOOQ configuration DSL with the Groovy language is coincidental. Complex types that include sequences like ForcedTypes must be defined in the DSL's nesting style:

forcedTypes {
  forcedType {
    name = 'varchar'
    expression = '.*'
    types = 'JSONB?'
  }
  forcedType {
    name = 'varchar'
    expression = '.*'
    types = 'INET'
  }
}

The Groovy list style is not supported:

forcedTypes = [
  {
    name = 'varchar'
    expression = '.*'
    types = 'JSONB?'
  },
  {
    name = 'varchar'
    expression = '.*'
    types = 'INET'
  }
]

Execution

Generating the jOOQ sources

You can generate the jOOQ sources for a given jOOQ configuration by invoking the task generate<configName>Jooq, e.g. generateTestJooq. The only exception being main that is abbreviated to generateJooq, similarly to how it is done for the JavaCompile tasks contributed by the java plugin. The generated jOOQ sources are automatically added to the source set with the name that matches the name of the given jOOQ configuration.

./gradlew generateJooq

By default, the code generation tasks are automatically configured as dependencies of the corresponding source compilation tasks provided by the JavaBasePlugin plugin. Hence, running a build that eventually needs to compile sources will first trigger the required jOOQ code generation tasks. This auto-triggering of the code generation when compiling the containing source set can be turned off by setting generateSchemaSourceOnCompilation to false on the jOOQ configuration.

Deleting the generated jOOQ sources

You can delete the generated jOOQ sources by invoking the task rule cleanGenerate<configName>Jooq, e.g. cleanGenerateTestJooq. The only exception being main that is abbreviated to cleanGenerateJooq, similarly to how it is done for the JavaCompile tasks contributed by the java plugin. The task rule will delete all files in the folder that is configured as the destination directory, regardless of whether the files were generated by the jOOQ plugin or not.

./gradlew cleanGenerateJooq

Migration

Migrating from jOOQ plugin 5.x to 6.x

When migrating your build from jOOQ plugin 5.x to 6.x, follow these steps:

Migrating from jOOQ plugin 4.x to 5.x

When migrating your build from jOOQ plugin 4.x to 5.x, follow these steps:

  • Rename the configuration provided the jOOQ plugin from jooqRuntime to jooqGenerator
  • Set the edition property as a JooqEdition enum value instead of a String value
  • Wrap the entirety of your jOOQ configurations with a configurations block
  • Rename the jOOQ configuration to the name of the previously passed source set
  • Move the generateSchemaSourceOnCompilation property assignment from the jooq block to the desired jOOQ configuration
  • Wrap the configuration of the generation tool with a generationTool block
  • Rename any references to the jOOQ task type from JooqTask to JooqGenerate
  • Rename any references to the jOOQ tasks from generate<configName>JooqSchemaSource to generate<configName>Jooq
