Hi folks - I’ve been using Liquibase in my Java project for the last 3-4 years. My install.changelog.xml has grown to 100+ changesets, and it’s getting a little silly when setting up a ‘new’ installation.
I’m looking for the best strategy to ‘reboot’ my installations. I only have 4-5 installs to deal with, and I have one good reference installation that I can delta off of.
What I thought I’d be able to do is to run a generateChangeLog off my ‘reference’ installation, and then do deltas against existing installs, bringing them ‘up to spec’.
But I can’t figure out the proper incantation to do this. I’ve tried using ‘diffs’, but they require a copy of the refernence database on the host you’re running the diff. What I want to do is say “Here is my install.changelog.xml that defines what I want. There is a database. Bring that database up to spec to match this changelog.”
Is this possible?
(More data - I’m running MySQL 5.x, my application is Java, but I do a lot of stuff from the command line as necessary.)
