Generating change script for Database using SOCO

I was very much impressed looking at SOCO seamlessly integrating with Oracle and Subversion.

In my organization, developers cannot apply Oracle changes and is streamlined through a group of DBA. As in this case, if I would like to apply changes made in Subversion to a DB can SOCO generate the change script to be handed over to the DBA group.

Also in a release process, changes in Subversion will first be applied to test DB and then to Quality DB and then to pre-production and Production DB. How does SOCO help to connect changes checked in a single subversion url to multiple Oracle DB instances ??

Answers to this questions will be key for us to pursue using Redgate SOCO.

    Hi, thank you for your forum post.

    To answer your questions:
    In my organization, developers cannot apply Oracle changes and is streamlined through a group of DBA. As in this case, if I would like to apply changes made in Subversion to a DB can SOCO generate the change script to be handed over to the DBA group.

    SOCO will not generate a change script that you can then pass to a group of people. A sister product called Schema Compare for Oracle will help you, as you a compare a schema with a scripts folder and generate a deployment script.

    SOCO, allows a person to make changes to a schema and check this changes into source control. The schema can be dedicated schema to that individual or a schema that all developers have access to.
    Also in a release process, changes in Subversion will first be applied to test DB and then to Quality DB and then to pre-production and Production DB. How does SOCO help to connect changes checked in a single subversion url to multiple Oracle DB instances ??

    In theory, you would have project for each schema in test, quality, pre-production and production connected to the same URL. If a developer is working on the test schema, he can lock the objects that he is working with.

    I recommend that you contact our Sales Team [[email protected]], who will be able demonstrate SOCO and the other Oracle tools to you.

    Many Thanks
