Never used it but its a DSL not an ORM. It is more comparable with QueryDsl which I have used with JPA before (alternative to the Criteria API) since the Spring Data project integrates them.

jOOQ is being used by a broader community every day. Good ways to get feedback are:

  • On the jOOQ User Group
  • On Stack Overflow
  • On reddit

  • jOOQ compares to Hibernate as follows:

  • jOOQ's main focus is on bringing SQL as an internal domain-specific language into Java. I.e. jOOQ is a SQL implementation
  • Hibernate's main focus is on simplifying mapping to POJOs. I.e. Hibernate is an ORM

  • This is also described in the jOOQ manual here:

    When Java and SQL work together, great software can evolve. That's why I have created jOOQ. Follow me on
    Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
