Managing software release cycles.

#1

How do you manage software release cycles with objectDB?

For example we might have different installation of a given web application, and we might need to introduce new fields with default values or to change something in the database "structure". 
How can we apply the update script without downloading the entire DB file?

Are there any command line tools like sqlPlus to connect to a DB and execute queries / scripts?

You can simply add new fields to an existing entity class and they will have default values.

See the following manual pages:

As you can see most schema changes are either fully automatic or can be defined by configuration.

In some cases you may have to write code. You can use the PostLoad event to adjust old objects to new format when they are loaded.
