Subject Re: DbGenerator vs. MergeContext
Date Fri, 22 Aug 2008 11:36:18 GMT
Interesting... I am not using either for anything complex lately,  
preferring manual SQL scripts executed with dbpatch Ant task, so I am  
a bit out of the loop.

So Tore, would you consider the merge package a logical superset of  
DbGenerator (even though not all features are there yet)? Or is there  
still non-overlapping pieces of functionality? I would also love to  
have less redundancy and drop DbGenerator at a point when there is a  
complete and more powerful replacement.
