Liquibase® Software Download

Database migrations are difficult. They shouldn’t be. Liquibase is used by millions of development teams around the world to automate manual database changes. Whether you have existing databases with countless objects or a greenfield development in the cloud, Liquibase is the proven solution.

 

Current Liquibase Core Release: 3.8.2 (November 26, 2019)

Liquibase is an open source database-independent solution for tracking, managing, applying, and deploying database schema changes. 

Integrating Liquibase into your overall code version management system and CI/CD efforts can sync up your database versions with your app versions for faster, higher quality software release cycles. 

How does it work?

Liquibase uses scripts (called changesets) to manage database changes. These changesets can be stored in various formats, including XML, YAML, JSON, and SQL. A master file lists all the changeset files. Liquibase also tracks which changesets have already run.

Issuing an update command looks at the current state of your database and identifies which changes have already happened. Then, it runs the rest of the changes giving you the latest revision of your defined structure.
