Liquiface: A Simplified Interface for Liquibase

"You never develop code without version control, why do you develop your database without it?" That's a very clear statement about the purpose of Liquibase. Liquibase is a free and open source database change tracking tool built on the premise that database changes should be managed in source control, along with the rest of your application.

I'm aware of Liquibase because of Liquiface. The purpose of Liquiface is also very clear: "We’ve been using Liquibase at our company for a while but until now changelog files were edited manually. It would be good to support the maintenance of changelog files by a graphical interface. And if we’re already using NetBeans, it is convenient to have this graphical interface accessed from within NetBeans." (Read this and more here.)

Definitely worth taking a look at this cool project!

Go straight to the NetBeans Plugin Portal to see what the Liquiface team has achieved:

Also read how the team developed the plugin:

The focus of this blog is mostly on NetBeans (a development tool primarily for Java programmers), with an occasional reference to NetBeans, and sometimes diverging to topics relating to NetBeans. And then there are days when NetBeans is mentioned, just for a change.
