Liquibase hello-world

This is a simple hello-world style example for the Liquibase relational database changeset handler.

Trying it out

To try it out:

sgit clone git://github.com/jave/liquibase-helloworld.git
cd liquibase-helloworld
mvn liquibase:update

The changelog file

A H2 database file /tmp/liquidhello.h2.db will be created.

Below is an example of what Liquibase changelog file can look like.

It defines two changesets, with ids 1 and 2.

Changeset 1 creates a table called test, with a column called name.

Changeset 2 adds a column to the table called test, called address.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<databaseChangeLog xmlns="http://www.liquibase.org/xml/ns/dbchangelog"
                   xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
                   xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.liquibase.org/xml/ns/dbchangelog http://www.liquibase.org/xml/ns/dbchangelog/dbchangelog-3.0.xsd">

  <changeSet id="1" author="jave">

    <createTable tableName="test">
      <column name="id" type="int"/>
      <column name="name" type="varchar(50)"/>
    </createTable>
  </changeSet>

  <changeSet id="2" author="jave">
    <addColumn  tableName="test">
        <column name="address" type="varchar(255)"/>
    </addColumn>
  </changeSet>

</databaseChangeLog>

The pom.xml file

The pom.xml file defines things like the jdbc url we need, and also the version of the liquibase plugin.
