Ruby on Rails migrations is much easier than Java
Anonymous Reader writes "The migrations story in Java programming is not nearly as robust. Dealing with changes in the data and object model can be a difficult task. The Ruby on Rails solution has some core advantages. With all of the benefits of Rails migrations, sush as: allowing data migration as well as schema migration, and the use of model logic with your data migration, you'd expect a complex piece of code, but they are incredibly simple. This article examines Rails schema migrations, a philosophy of separating each database schema change from the base object model."
