About the Topic


DBInit is a tool for initially creating the database schema objects and for preparing the database content of one or more Intershop 7/Intershop Commerce Management cartridges. It is not designed to migrate the database content and structure (see DBMigrate).


DBMigrate is a tool used to migrate the database content and the database structure of an Intershop 7/Intershop Commerce Management installation from a defined previous release to an installed current release. It defines one global migration process, which can be executed in different environments. DBMigrate reuses some recurring migration steps (e.g., table creation), supports different development teams to create their own migration processes, and can minimize the effort to upgrade the development environment.
