Re: Version control of Databases

We are also using Oracle.

No biggie. We use TOAD, and there is (with the pricier license, of
course) a DB Compare tool that will automagically create your scripts
for you. If necessary, run this tool just before you do a branch (or
after) and save that in. The other option - when they make a change
through their GUI tools is to then take a snapshot of the DDL and save
that out, saving it as the actual object name (with the object type as
the extension).

Of course - your developers may choose option 1 because it's work they
don't have to do. But then how do you track which developer is making
which change to your DB?

Regards,
Frank
