For the project I work on and for previous projects as well that support multiple upgrade paths, this kind of tooling is a necessity. And I would prefer to avoid duplicating effort if there is already something out there. If not though, I will be sure to post back to the list with whatever I wind up doing.

Not that I know of.  I've always been really strict about dumping my schemas (to start) and keeping my changes in migration files.  I don't do a ton of schema changes so I haven't had a need to really automate it.

Even with MySQL I never bothered.

I have been looking to see if there are any schema change management tools for Cassandra. I have not come across any so far. I figured I would check to see if anyone can point me to something before I start trying to implement something on my own. I have used liquibase ( for relational databases. Earlier today I tried using it with the cassandra-jdbc driver, but ran into some exceptions due to the SQL generated. I am not looking specifically for something CQL-based. Something that uses the Thrift API via CLI scripts for example would work as well.
