I agree, but only in few sets of sql files. The reasons why
DatabaseCreator was introduced:

0. Make life of sysadmins and developers easier
1. If passed --database, it would drop and recreate databases
2. Utility to run sql files, based on passwd file (no
hardcoded db.props file)
3. Run db upgrader class, so we won't have to run custom upgrade path scripts

database or deploy a new schema.

So, maven's deploydb and cloud-setup-databases (or
cloudstack-setup-databases now) take different routes. Channeling both
of them through DatabaseCreator would ensure same kind of database
deploying/creating environment for both developers and sysadmins, less
bugs and issues.

It's not required that you've to pass the same set of sql files or
configuration in both cases, for example the developer-prefill or
devcloud.sql should not be part of cloudstack-setup-databases.

I saw three files which were not part of one of the use cases, so I
asked why they are there and who's using them. I don't know so I ask

and load a database (if the supplied database is empty).

Yes, my point is as a developer I want to test/play around them as well.

the upgrade sql script should be in sync with these changes.

You got it! Keeping them in sync is an issue, channeling them through
DatabaseCreator would make things little more maintainable. I also see
DatabaseCreator as a utility that can be perhaps used by plugins and
external tools as well (distant future) to do magical stuff, reusable
and maintainable.

Thoughts, comments?
