2018 Community Survey

15 Mar 2018

Listening to feedback from the community is a vital part of any open source project and it has frankly been a little too long since I’ve had the chance to hear the voice of those who make use of Liquibase. As I make more time to devote to the project, I’m keen to understand your perspective – if nothing else, to inform my priorities as I go through pull requests and think through additional updates.

Top 5 Indicators You Are Ready to Move from Liquibase to Datical DB

31 Aug 2016

Ten years ago, I started Liquibase to bring sanity to my database schema changes. At the time, I was working on a 3-tier Java web project. Ruby on Rails had Active Record Migrations and I asked, “Why can’t I have that for Java?” Since then, Liquibase has become the standard for database change management. We support 13 databases and have 24 extensions for other databases. (Hi, Teradata and Hana!!!) All of that progress is because of our amazing users, committers, and testers. We couldn’t have done it without you.


Expanding Database Support

12 Jul 2016

Liquibase has always focused mainly on “standard” SQL databases, but we are looking to improving support for NoSQL databases like Cassandra, MongoDB, Hadoop and others. We’d also like to make sure our support for databases like DB2 on iSeries and System z as well as Redshift, Azure SQL Server, Vertica, Greenplumb etc.


Happy Birthday! 10 Years of Liquibase

Liquibase for DBAs

01 Jun 2016

The role of the Database Administrator is evolving and has never been more complex. DBA’s are constantly juggling schema management, performance tuning, change control, plus database administration all within ever-shortening application development cycles. On top of all that, there are more database environments to manage than ever before, more distributed sources of database changes, and more stringent compliance requirements.
