Database Change Management

You never develop code without version control, why do you develop your database without it?

Liquibase is an open source (Apache 2.0 Licensed), database-independent library for tracking, managing and applying database changes. It is built on a simple premise: All database changes are stored in a human readable yet trackable form and checked into source control.

Liquibase Supports:

  • Extensibility
  • Merging changes from multiple developers
  • Code branches
  • Multiple Databases
  • Managing production data as well as various test datasets
  • Cluster-safe database upgrades
  • Automated updates or generation of SQL scripts that can be approved and applied by a DBA
  • Update rollbacks
  • Database ”diff“s
  • Generating starting change logs from existing databases
  • Generating database change documentation
