You can think of Flyway as version control for your database. It lets you evolve your database schema easily and reliably across all your instances. Flyway has been designed from day one to be easy to setup and simple to master. It strongly favors simplicity and convention over configuration. It achieves this by focusing on one problem only and solving it well.
Flyway has been built from the ground up for continuous delivery. We highly recommend you let Flyway migrate your database on application startup and you'll see that releases will never have been this easy.
It has a Command-line client. If you are on the JVM, we recommend using the Java API (also works on Android) for migrating the database on application startup. Alternatively, you can also use the Maven plugin, Gradle plugin, SBT plugin or the Ant tasks.
And if that not enough, there are plugins available for Spring Boot, Dropwizard, Grails, Play, Griffon, Grunt, Ninja and more!
Supported databases are Oracle, SQL Server, SQL Azure, DB2, DB2 z/OS, MySQL (including Amazon RDS), MariaDB, Google Cloud SQL, PostgreSQL (including Amazon RDS and Heroku), Redshift, Vertica, H2, Hsql, Derby, SQLite, SAP HANA, solidDB, Sybase ASE and Phoenix.
Flyway received the highest distinction on the Thoughtworks Technology Radar by being placed in the adopt category. Adoption has grown exponentially to reach 850,000+ downloads in 2015 alone:
Enjoy migrating your databases with ease and pleasure!
