Next.JDBC Release Candidate 1

| Comments

seancorfield/next.jdbc 1.0.0-rc1

next.jdbc – the “next generation” of clojure.java.jdbc – is a modern Clojure wrapper for JDBC. The first Release Candidate is now available to test – containing only accretive and fixative changes from Beta 1. The API should be considered stable enough for production usage.

The focus of this release is providing more flexibility in result set builders, so that it is easier to implement your own naming strategies, via new builders that accept :label-fn and :qualifier-fn options. These mirror the :column-fn and :table-fn options used in next.jdbc.sql – which are updated versions of clojure.java.jdbc’s :entities option. These new builder options are updated versions of clojure.java.jdbc’s :identifiers option.

Changes since Beta 1

  • Fix #24 by adding return type hints to next.jdbc functions.
  • Fix #22 by adding next.jdbc.optional with six map builders that omit NULL columns from the row hash maps.
  • Documentation improvements (#27, #28, and #29), including changing “connectable” to “transactable” for the transact function and the with-transaction macro (for consistency with the name of the underlying protocol).
  • Fix #30 by adding modified variants of column name functions and builders. The lower variants have been rewritten in terms of these new modified variants. This adds :label-fn and :qualifier-fn options that mirror :column-fn and :table-fn for row builders.

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.
