      Modifier and Type Method Description
      boolean generatesNullsOnLeft()
      Returns whether a join of this type may generate NULL values on the left-hand side.
      boolean generatesNullsOnRight()
      Returns whether a join of this type may generate NULL values on the right-hand side.
      static JoinType valueOf​(java.lang.String name)
      Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name.
      static JoinType[] values()
      Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared.

      • INNER

        public static final JoinType INNER
        Inner join.
      • LEFT

        public static final JoinType LEFT
        Left-outer join.
      • RIGHT

        public static final JoinType RIGHT
        Right-outer join.
      • FULL

        public static final JoinType FULL
        Full-outer join.
      • SEMI

        public static final JoinType SEMI
        Semi-join.

        For example, EMP semi-join DEPT finds all EMP records that have a corresponding DEPT record:

         SELECT * FROM EMP
         WHERE EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM DEPT
             WHERE DEPT.DEPTNO = EMP.DEPTNO)
      • ANTI

        public static final JoinType ANTI
        Anti-join (also known as Anti-semi-join).

        For example, EMP anti-join DEPT finds all EMP records that do not have a corresponding DEPT record:

         SELECT * FROM EMP
         WHERE NOT EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM DEPT
             WHERE DEPT.DEPTNO = EMP.DEPTNO)

      • values

        public static JoinType[] values()
        Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
        for (JoinType c : JoinType.values())
            System.out.println(c);
        
        Returns:
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static JoinType valueOf​(java.lang.String name)
        Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
        Parameters:
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        Returns:
        the enum constant with the specified name
        Throws:
        java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        java.lang.NullPointerException - if the argument is null
      • generatesNullsOnRight

        public boolean generatesNullsOnRight()
        Returns whether a join of this type may generate NULL values on the right-hand side.
      • generatesNullsOnLeft

        public boolean generatesNullsOnLeft()
        Returns whether a join of this type may generate NULL values on the left-hand side.
