Frequently asked questions
Liquibase Community is released under the Apache 2.0 license. The main Liquibase jar file also contains a commercially-licensed Liquibase Pro code that is only active when a license key is entered.
Liquibase Business and Liquibase Enterprise are commercially licensed. Contact Sales for specific license details.
You can get the Liquibase open source project source code from GitHub.
Database connections are simply the number of databases in each environment connected to Liquibase Pro. The illustration below provides examples of how to count database connections.
Liquibase works better because it understands your changes. For example, a database comparison program would simply see the “person” table on integration has a “firstname” and a “lastname” column, but on live, the “person” table has a “name” column. It would report that you need to drop the “name” column and add a “firstname” and a “lastname” column. While this would leave you with the correct schema, you would lose everyone’s name in the process. With Liquibase, you would have a changeset that says “rename ‘name’ to ‘lastname’ and add a ‘firstname’ column” or, even better, “split the name column on a space and place the values in new ‘firstname’ and ‘lastname’ columns, then drop the ‘name’ column.” Knowing why they are different allows you to make changes to a production database without the fear of losing valuable data.
Yes. Since each change is independent, database changes that have been made in a different branch and then merged in will run the next time you run Liquibase. If you encounter a problem with the order that the statements are in, simply reorder the changelog files.
