Liquibase
Chose Liquibase
We adopted Liquibase to complete our Ci/Cd scenarios. Without Liquibase, DB changes were out to scope in our DevOps scenarios. Log and accountability are more clear now.
Chose Liquibase
At the time, Liquibase offered a community version and I think Flyway didn’t. In our case, we did not have any previous experience with any database management tools, so we just went with what was free to try out.
Chose Liquibase
Liquibase is easy to use, but it lacks performance and error handling.

Open Source
Jenkins is a highly customizable CI/CD tool with excellent community support. One can use Jenkins to build and deploy monolith services to microservices with ease. It can handle multiple "builds" per agent simultaneously, but the process can be resource hungry, and you need some impressive specs server for that. With Jenkins, you can automate almost any task. Also, as it is an open source, we can save a load of money by not spending on enterprise CI/CD tools.

Pros
Open Source
  • Automated Builds: Jenkins is configured to monitor the version control system for new pull requests. Once a pull request is created, Jenkins automatically triggers a build process. It checks out the code, compiles it, and performs any necessary build steps specified in the configuration.
  • Unit Testing: Jenkins runs the suite of unit tests defined for the project. These tests verify the functionality of individual components and catch any regressions or errors. If any unit tests fail, Jenkins marks the build as unsuccessful, and the developer is notified to fix the issues.
  • Code Analysis: Jenkins integrates with code analysis tools like SonarQube or Checkstyle. It analyzes the code for quality, adherence to coding standards, and potential bugs or vulnerabilities. The results are reported back to the developer and the product review team for further inspection.

Liquibase
  • It can automate database deployment scripts, consistently deploy the same way in every environment, have rollbacks always prepared for every database change, and have all detailed info of deployments in one place
  • Liquibase's changelog files serve as a centralized hub for all database changes. This makes it easy for multiple developers to work on the same project without conflicts, enhancing collaboration and reducing errors

Cons
Open Source
  • The UI could be slightly better, it feels kind of like the 90s, but it works well.
  • An easier way to filter jobs other than views on the dashboard.
  • An easier way to read the console logs when tests do fail.

Liquibase
  • Reducing Compatibility issues, when we upgraded Liquibase from 4.2 to 4.9. The same changeset which we were able to run on successfully using 4.2, part of it was now failing when tried to deploy using 4.9
  • We are not able to see detailed logs (for different changes) in uDeploy when deploying changes through Liquibase
  • Liquibase should rollback the if any one of the changes fails.

Performance
Open Source
No, when we integrated this with GitHub, it becomes more easy and smart to manage and control our workforce. Our distributed workforce is now streamlined to a single bucket. All of our codes and production outputs are now automatically synced with all the workers. There are many cases when our in-house team makes changes in the release, our remote workers make another release with other environment variables. So it is better to get all of the work in control.

Support Rating
Open Source
There is a large development community - but it is shifting as people move towards other tools. A lot of companies still use Jenkins and will build propriety tools, which doesn't help any of the open-source community. Jenkins has a lot of help and support online, but other, more modern, alternatives will have better support for newer tech.

Alternatives Considered
Open Source
Overall, Jenkins is the easiest platform for someone who has no experience to come in and use effectively. We can get a junior engineer into Jenkins, give them access, and point them in the right direction with minimal hand-holding. The competing products I have used (TravisCI/GitLab/Azure) provide other options but can obfuscate the process due to the lack of straightforward simplicity. In other areas (capability, power, customization), Jenkins keeps up with the competition and, in some areas, like customization, exceeds others.

Liquibase
Liquibase makes it easy to integrate into CI/CD pipelines, keeping the database and code in sync. The switch from one database management system to another is made easier by modeling the structure of the database in DBMS-independent XML rather than SQL. A user-friendly web console gives you a complete picture of the database landscape by showing you which environments have received a particular changeset.

Liquibase
  • We need to re-educate developers to use Liquibase.
  • In some cases, it is hard to align when several teams work on the same DB.
  • On the other hand, Liquibase provides order and consistency in managing DB changes.
  • Evidence and traceability are a plus.
