Database Refactoring With LiquiBase

LiquiBase is an open source (LGPL), DBMS-independent library for tracking, managing and applying database changes. It is built on a simple premise: All database changes (structure and data) are stored in an XML-based descriptive manner and checked into source control.

LiquiBase aims to provide a solution that:

Supports merging of changes from multiple developers

  • Works well with code branches

  • A Database Refactoring IDE-Plugin (short demo)

  • Isn’t DBMS-specific

  • Allows you to manage production data as well as various test datasets

  • Works in an environment where multiple machines will be attempting to migrate the database concurrently

  • Supports automated change-applying or generation of SQL scripts that can be approved and applied by a DBA

  • Supports rolling back changes

  • Can create database ”diff“s and can generate change logs from them

  • Can auto-generate database change documentation
