Thread: Generating upgrade scripts

    Generating upgrade scripts

    Hi,

    I have an application that is to be deployed at a number of sites. That's
    no problem: I can generate the schema from my development database and
    install it at each site. The problem comes with upgrades - is there an
    automatic way, or a tool, to generate scripts that can be used to upgrade
    all the tables in a database (which has got constraints etc) to the new
    layout (as per my development machine).

    Generally, the only changes would be addition of fields, I'm certainly not
    expecting it to do any rocket science!

    Best wishes
    James

    Re: Generating upgrade scripts

    You can either write the code yourself to do the upgrade or look at:

    http://www.aloeco.com/upgrader/
