NoOra is an attempt to apply a pattern to Oracle database projects in order to promote portability and productivity.
The concept is simple. A fixed folder structure is used on your file system. Put your Oracle scripts in the right folder and NoOra knows how to install or update your database.
You can install Packages,Tables,.. and data. An installation can be made environment specific, if you have more then one database.
Multiple schema's are also supported.
NoOra comes to you as a set of helper scripts. The scripts are written in Python and can be used on multiple operating systems like Unix, Linux, Mac and Windows.
NoOra is a plugin based system. For example plugins for dropping, recreation and executing unit tests are available.
The configuration of your database project is fixed in one configuration file, called project.conf. This file can be found in the root folder of your database project.
