Database migration tool: I wish I found LiquiBase earlier

Sunday, August 10th, 2008



LiquiBase — available since 2006 — is an open source, freely available tool for migrating from one database version to another (see Resources). A handful of other open source database-migration tools are on the scene as well, including openDBcopy and dbdeploy. LiquiBase supports 10 database types, including DB2, Apache Derby, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, Microsoft® SQL Server, Sybase, and HSQL.

A year ago, we’ve gone through a painstaking database & system migration from PostgreSQL to MSSQL. We’ve never found this tool. Maybe, we will try to use this tool next time… if any. 😀
