Oracle 12c Goodies: { CROSS | OUTER } APPLY

I can’t believe my eyes. Has this been openly communicated by Oracle? I haven’t seen too many blog posts on that matter. Apart from introducing the awesome SQL Standard OFFSET .. FETCH clause (just like SQL Server 2012), there seems to be now also { CROSS | OUTER } APPLY in Oracle 12c! Check out the documentation:

http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E16655_01/server.121/e17209/statements_10002.htm#BABJHDDA

It’s about time jOOQ hops on the 12c train and supports all of these goodies! Expect to see APPLY support in jOOQ, soon, along with emulation thereof (if that’s possible and easy…)
