Flyway is an open source database migration tool.


It is based around 7 basic commands: Migrate, Clean, Info, Validate, Undo, Baseline and Repair.

Migrations can be written in SQL (database-specific syntax such as PL/SQL, T-SQL, etc is supported) or Java (for advanced data transformations or dealing with LOBs).

It has a Command-line client, a Java API (also works on Android) for migrating the database on application startup, a Maven plugin and a Gradle plugin.

Plugins are available for Spring Boot, Dropwizard, Grails, Play, SBT, Ant, Griffon, Grunt, Ninja and more.

Supported databases are Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, MySQL (including Amazon RDS, Aurora MySQL, MariaDB), Percona XtraDB, PostgreSQL (including Amazon RDS and Heroku), Aurora PostgreSQL, CockroachDB, Redshift, Informix, H2, Hsql, Derby, SQLite, SAP HANA, Sybase ASE and Phoenix.[1]


Flyway received 11,500,000 downloads in 2018 alone.

In January 2015, Flyway was placed in the "Adopt" section of the Thoughtworks Technology Radar.[2]
