db migrations

Hi All,

   I new to Rails worked for couple of projects in J2EE web
technologies and PHP.

  I am very new to Rails while looking at the features, is it db
migrations are really required?? I strongly feel that its over burden
process for developers.

  What do you think?? please update me if I am wrong??

Thanks,
Ramu.

Is there any reason you really want to switch?

Rails is strong on conventions, it's an opinionated software.
At the core of it's philosophy is that it's not for everyone.

In my view migrations are a really nice feature, but should you choose
not to use use them, it might become rather complex. Your choice.

You don't have to. Obviously you will need some way of updating your
database schema and so on but you can write lots of sql be hand if you
feel like it.
