Flyway Documentation


Community Plugins and Integrations: Dropwizard

Application startup

While Dropwizard doesn’t come with out-of-the-box integration for Flyway you can easily run Flyway on application startup by adding flyway-core to your pom.xml:


And calling Flyway from your application class:

public class MyApplication extends Application<MyConfiguration> {

    public void run(MyConfiguration configuration, Environment environment) {
        DataSourceFactory dataSourceFactory = configuration.getDataSourceFactory();
        Flyway flyway = new Flyway();
        flyway.setDataSource(dataSourceFactory.getUrl(), dataSourceFactory.getUser(), dataSourceFactory.getPassword());

CLI add-on

Jochen Schalanda has created a great Dropwizard Add-On that adds Flyway commands to the CLI of your Dropwizard application.

The website also comes with comprehensive documentation on usage and configuration.
