JVM Properties

Nonetheless, some Java-specific concepts have to be exposed, like our use of Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) drivers. The Flyway Command Line client […] Read more

Using Git Hooks with Flyway

When you’re on your own developing a simple application, managing your migration scripts is not a demanding task; each time you add a script, it gets the next version number in whatever sequence you’ve decided on using.

Announcing Flyway/CockroachDB Support

Earlier versions of Flyway supported simpler schema migrations within a single CockroachDB node.

In Flyway 6.3.0 we introduced a new feature. The ability to use the ${flyway:timestamp} placeholder (See Placeholders for more details). This placeholder will insert the current date in the format yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss as its value. Now, this has some very obvious uses such as storing the date a migration was executed into your database. However, there is something more complex you […] Read more
