There is nothing framework-specific to migrations anyway; as many
other feature in the application cookbook, it maps directly to the
deploy resource; its documentation applies.
Except… the Java cookbook does not use deploy at this time; it
didn’t in the previous version, and unfortunately it still does not.
It’s not very clear to me how migrations would fit in the workflow of
a typical Java shop. In fact I’ve brainstormed about application_java
with miscellaneous people and we haven’t even touched on
migrations–not high-priority enough, I guess.
