├── create_db.sql
└── pom.xml

Files and sub-directories in com/hellokoding/jooq/modeldirectory will be auto generated by jOOQ. We only play with pom.xml, create_db.sql and com/hellokoding/jooq/Application.java

Project dependencies


jooq-codegen-maven plugin's used for generate domain and DAO objects in com/hellokoding/jooq/model

Create database

Run below script to create a sample MySQL database


Run


System.property()'s bound to systemProperty of exec-maven-plugin configuration in pom.xml

Run with this command mvn clean compile exec:java -Dexec.mainClass=com.hellokoding.jooq.Application -Dexec.cleanupDaemonThreads=false
