LiquiBase is a DBMS-independent library for tracking, managing, and applying database changes. It is built on a simple premise: all database changes (structure and data) are stored in an XML-based descriptive manner and checked into source control. While there have been many attempts to provide a similar tool, LiquiBase aims to provide a solution that supports merging of changes from multiple developers, works well with code branches, supports a database refactoring IDE/plugin, and more.
