Subject RE: Generating upgrade scripts based on schema changes
Date Wed, 15 Aug 2007 16:52:53 GMT
Take a look at the Apache DB subproject DDLUTILS. The API docs at


seem to indicate it will do what you want.  Plus they use
the same XML format as Torque does.

If that won't work, I know there are several fairly low cost 
commercial tools that will do this for different DBs. I have
used one (I think it was DBSolo) for MS SQL that 
generated a nice script you could run to update a DB SCHEMA.
