jOOQ Tutorial by Ikai Lan

A friend of mine recently found a nice tutorial about jOOQ on the web:

http://ikaisays.com/2011/11/01/getting-started-with-jooq-a-tutorial

This was written by Ikai Lan, a Google App Engine developer. See also my previous blog post about a jOOQ integration example with Google Cloud SQL:

jOOQ and Google Cloud SQL Example

This is all too simple. Here’s how you can create an easy jOOQ / Google Cloud SQL integration example:

  1. Sign up with Google App Engine
  2. Sign up with Google Cloud SQL
  3. Create a Google App Engine project (preferably with Eclipse)
  4. Add jOOQ to your project
  5. Add your generated schema to your project
  6. Done

Google Cloud SQL is actually a MySQL database, which you can also install locally on your machine for development purposes. For your jOOQ integration, this means that you will set up the code generation and execution just as if you were using a plain MySQL database. Simple, huh?
