Database Change Management for Application Developers

By: Calvin Tang

Abstract: A database is a shared central resource. Unlike Java, Delphi or .NET projects where code is copied to the developer's workstation for editing, database schema objects are created and altered in a development environment then promoted to a UAT (User Acceptance Testing) environment and then ultimately placed in a production environment. DB Change Manager is the tool that assists in the process of promoting code across the various development and testing environments that an enterprise may require. DB Change Manager also integrates with version control tools like Subversion (which we'll see in this presentation), Team Foundation Server, CVS and others. In this presentation we'll discuss the common work flow that Embarcadero has observed from its user base. We will also explore how users can add Alter, Create and Drop scripts generated by DB Change Manager to the version control tool of their choice.
