Title

Maintaining a production application while preserving production data

Post

     I have separate production and development environments. Is there any way to move fixes and enhancements into a prod environment without disturbing the prod data?

     This is how I have been doing it -  seems onerous:

         
  1.           Export prod data to "Prod Backup" directoy
  2.      
  3.           Copy application from Prod to Dev environment
  4.      
  5.           Apply changes and test in Dev environment
  6.      
  7.           Delete data from tables and import from "Prod Backup"
  8.      
  9.           Move application back to prod environment
