Our followers, users and customers are shouting to the world. Here are:
- Breandan Considine who, thanks to jOOQ, has lost over ten pounds and can now write queries at the speed of thought! (He must have lost that weight because he forgot to eat while enjoying coding with jOOQ!)
- Chris Martin who cannot wait for jOOQ 3.3’s awesome new SEEK method!
The Data Geekery Business Case at RedHat’s opensource.com
In our last newsletter, we have promoted our cooperation with RedHat’s content marketing team regarding our Open Source vendor business model. In the mean time, we have published another article on their platform about the 5 lessons learned for any business transitioning to a revenue-based model with Open Source. We recommend this interesting read to anyone who plans to make money with Open Source:
Our cooperation with other Open Source projects is a crucial part of our marketing strategy. Our ASL 2.0 / commercial dual licensing model might prove to be a viable use-case also for other Open Source projects building on top of jOOQ. Examples of such projects that are currently investigating an integration are
Also in the future, we’ll make an effort to better integrate with such projects to help spread the good jOOQ news to the world.
It looks like great community-contributed work doesn’t stop appearing around jOOQ. We’ve worked together with Loiane Groner who has written this great tutorial about jOOQ in Portuguese. Loiane is consultant working for IBM and a well-known writer of books that mostly talk about Sencha Ext JS. She has also been promoting MyBatis in the past. We’re looking forward to more from her!
Ben Hood has been a long-term jOOQ aficionado who had been very active on the user group. He has taken inspiration from jOOQ to build his own DSL for Apache Cassandra, calling it CQLC, which is great news for the Cassandra community!Now, we’re looking forward to other APIs that cover MongoDB or Neo4j!
And just recently, Breandan Considine (who has lost ten pounds because of jOOQ) published great video tutorial for jOOQ, Gradle and IntelliJ IDEA users
In January, we have been visiting probably the largest JUG in Germany, theRheinJUG in Düsseldorf and also the JUGM in Munich. The German-speakers among you can watch the whole RheinJUG presentation. The audience was very very interactive and has left the talk with thousands of insights to continue discussing, as our talks inspire not only jOOQ business, but also SQL love!
Here is an overview of our upcoming events.
- March 20, 2014: JUGS Zürich (German, about SQL)
- April 4, 2014: JUG Saxony Day in Dresden (German, about jOOQ)
- April 7, 2014: VSUG in Vienna (English, about jOOQ in Scala!)
- May 14 – 16, 2014: Geecon in Kraków (English, about jOOQ)
With our new SQL-talk, we’ll no longer just spread some jOOQ love, but also some SQL love in general. We believe that SQL deserves more presence in today’s software engineering talks, and who would be better to talk about SQL than us? Are you interested in hosting this talk at your company? Contact us!

Java Zone – Java 8
In this section of the newsletter, we usually talk about SQL in the “SQL Zone”, but our other beloved technology is Java and exciting times are ahead in 2014 for us Java folks. This is why we have started a new series in our blog, the Java 8 Friday Goodies.
In this series, we talk about little everyday things that improve / impair / or just change with Java 8 when we code. Some examples:
