my PR https://github.com/camunda/camunda-bpm-platform/pull/245 was accepted. Now database setup is decoupled from engine setup, meaning we can “plug-in” a different db-setup mechanism if we want to. Please check the link, wont elaborate for now.
Question: I already started with a camunda-bpm-flyway extenssion a while ago ( https://github.com/jangalinski/camunda-bpm-flyway ) and would continue to use a 7.6. snapshot leveraging the new found freedom of choice.
However: It might be a good idea to come up with a camunda-bpm-database extension that has sub-modules for liquibase and flyway and rmains open for other technologies.
Who would use an extension for db setup on engine creation? Which frameworks would you like? What would a good name be? Who would like to join me? Who would like to sponsor?
So many questions … thank good you have a few days off thinking about it. I expect your feedback on tuesday
