Welcome To Flyway

Flyway Engine is an database migration tool that strongly favors simplicity and convention over configuration.

It is based around just several core commands: Migrate, Clean, Info, Validate, Undo, Baseline and Repair.

Plus an extended set of commands for more advanced use-cases: Auth, Check and Snapshot

Migrations can be written in:

  • SQL - database-specific syntax (such as PL/SQL, T-SQL, ...) is supported
  • Java - for advanced data transformations or dealing with LOBs.

It has a Command-line client. It also allows Java API integration for migrating the database on your application startup. Alternatively, you can also use the Maven plugin or Gradle plugin.

And if that's not enough, there are plugins available for Spring Boot, Dropwizard, Grails, Play, SBT, Ant, Griffon, Grunt, Ninja and more!
