PS - an alternative to Liquibase for those with a well-founded horror of manually defined XML - try Sqitch (

No opinions

Sqitch is not integrated with any framework, ORM, or platform. Rather, it is a standalone change management system with no opinions about your database engine, application framework, or development environment. Native scripting

Changes are implemented as scripts native to your selected database engine. Writing a PostgreSQL <>application? Write SQL scripts for psql <>. Writing a MySQL <>-backed app? Write SQL scripts for mysql<> .

It's implemented in Perl and uses instant client - so no massive dependencies.
