"Database migrations are something that Java developers struggle with, and Flyway provides a nice tool that anyone with basic knowledge of SQL can use. For that reason it has become the favourite migration tool in the Spring Boot team."
Head of Technology Europe, ThoughtWorks
"With techniques such as continuous delivery becoming more mainstream, automated database migrations are a baseline capability for many software teams. Flyway makes it as painless as possible to automate this process."
Director of Developer Advocacy, Red Hat
"Flyway should be a fundamental part of any Java EE application DevOps. It simplifies database migration and seamlessly integrates with your application lifecycle."
