Hi, I tried to use flywayDB with Amazon Redshift. But, it does not work.

There is no problem for us to use PostgreSQL JDBC driver to connect with Redshift. But, I am failure when I connect flywayDB with Redshift as if redshift is a postgreSQL.

I forked flywaydb source code. and found out it because flyway postgresql support uses some SQL feature and system tables that Redshift does not support now.

I feel it will not be difficult to add support to Redshift with postgreSQL support as a reference.

Will anybody here to work on it? I can do it too with some support from here.

thanks and regards,

Sure, it shouldn't be that far off. Redshift is based on a stone age version of Postgres (8.0, released 9 years ago!!!). Flyway's Postgres support has been geared at Postgres 9.0 and up.

You can start by implementing DbSupport for Postgres 8.x by using the Postgres 9.x support ( as a base.

Don't forget to make the MigrationTestCase run with Postgres 8.x as well.

Pull request welcome.
