jOOQ (Java Object Oriented Querying) Open Source Edition is an open source and freely distributed version of the jOOQ command-line software implemented in Java and designed from the ground up to act as a tool for generating Java code from various databases.
The application includes a fluent API (Application Programming Interface) that allows you to build type safe SQL queries. It is also distributed as two commercial editions, Professional and Enterprise.

Under the hood and supported operating systems
Taking a look under the hood of jOOQ, we can immediately notice that the application has been written entirely in the Java programming language, which means that is is supported on any computer operating system where the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is available.
At the moment, it has been successfully tested with numerous distributions of Linux, as well as with Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems, supporting both 32-bit and 64-bit computer architectures.
