Next.JDBC Beta 1

| Comments

seancorfield/next.jdbc 1.0.0-beta1

next.jdbc – the “next generation” of clojure.java.jdbc – is a modern Clojure wrapper for JDBC. Beta 1 is now available to test – only accretive and fixative changes will be made from this point on, so the API should be considered stable enough for production usage.

https://cljdoc.org/d/seancorfield/next.jdbc/1.0.0-beta1/doc/readme

The group and artifact ID will remain seancorfield/next.jdbc, the namespace structure will remain next.jdbc.*. With auto-generated documentation hosted on cljdoc.org and Continuous Integration testing hosted on circleci.com, I have decided to continue work on next.jdbc outside Clojure Contrib, rather than merge it into clojure.java.jdbc as new namespaces there. I have updated the Contributing page on GitHub to reflect that Pull Requests can now be submitted.

Changes since Alpha 13

  • Set up CircleCI testing (just local DBs for now).
  • Address #21 by adding next.jdbc.specs and documenting basic usage.
  • Fix #19 by caching loaded database driver classes.
  • Address #16 by renaming reducible! to plan (this is a BREAKING CHANGE! from Alpha 13 – the naming of this function was the blocker for moving from Alpha to Beta).
  • Address #3 by deciding to maintain this library outside Clojure Contrib.

Please take it for a test drive and let me know if you run into any problems via GitHub issues or in the #sql channel on the Clojurians Slack or the #sql stream on the Clojurians Zulip.
