Using Liquibase with Kubernetes

Using Liquibase with Kubernetes

If you’re using Liquibase for database versioning with Kubernetes to deploy your app, you might have faced an issue when a migration gets stuck because Liquibase can’t acquire lock. It might look somewhat like this:

liquibase.exception.LockException: Could not acquire change log lock.  Currently locked by LockOwner ...

This article is a result of me trying to customize dependency injection in Spring to make it smarter as well as trying to get a deeper understanding of how does it work. I hope you’ll find it useful as well!
