Thank you very much for your report. I can reproduce this issue:
Will look into this soon,

Hmm, this will be tricky without actually supporting the money type
formally (https://github.com/jOOQ/jOOQ/issues/4364).
The PostgreSQL JDBC driver will "toString" the monetary amount, which
produces a locale-dependent value. This is hard to parse back again into
jOOQ's current BigDecimal mapping. Will need to think about this a bit more
thoroughly. Further discussion directly on the issue #6850

... the more I'm reading about this money type, the more I'm convinced it
should not be used at all:
The decimal precision is fixed by the server's relevant lc_monetary
setting, but what if that setting changes? Will we lose precision,
suddenly? What if we're in Switzerland (0.## precision) but we want to
trade with stocks (often usually 0.#### precision)? Is it still an
appropriate type?
Given that not even the JDBC driver correctly handles the money type after
a simple test (pardon my German):
ResultSet rs = s.executeQuery("SELECT 1234.50::money");
org.postgresql.util.PSQLException: Unzulässiger Wert für den Typ double :
CHF 1'234.50.
at org.postgresql.jdbc.PgResultSet.toDouble(PgResultSet.java:2921)
at org.postgresql.jdbc.PgResultSet.getDouble(PgResultSet.java:2338)
at org.postgresql.jdbc.PgResultSet.internalGetObject(PgResultSet.java:193)
at org.postgresql.jdbc.PgResultSet.getObject(PgResultSet.java:2589)
at Postgres.main(Postgres.java:28)
I'm getting to the conclusion that we should unsupport the money type and
recommend not to use it. Nevertheless, you can always implement your own
data type binding for top-level money type usage:
Which will probably, unfortunately, not work if your type is inside of a UDT
So, I'm afraid, I won't have a solution here.
