Chapter 6: Tackling Different Kinds of JOINs

The SQL JOIN clause represents one of the most used SQL features. From the well-known INNER and OUTER JOIN clauses, the fictional Semi and Anti Join, to the fancy LATERAL join, this chapter is a comprehensive set of examples meant to help you practice a wide range of JOIN clauses via the jOOQ DSL API.

The topics of this chapter include the following:

  • Practicing the most popular types of JOINs (CROSS, INNER, and OUTER)
  • The SQL USING and jOOQ onKey() shortcuts
  • Practicing more types of JOINs (Implicit, Self, NATURAL, STRAIGHT, Semi, Anti, and LATERAL)

Let's get started!
