Promoting Alfresco from development to test environment

We have a standard application staging environment where we have our Alfresco application running on a development server, a testing server and a production server.

Once development of an iteration is complete we tag our source code and run a build process to move it to the testing server. Once the testers have successfully completed testing the application will be deployed to the production server.

Moving the modified source code between staging environment is straightforward. However, many of the changes that need to be migrated between environments are contained within the database. Currently, we manage this by (e.g. from development to test):

1) Using a script to dump the database table structure from the development database into an SQL script
2) Running the SQL script in the testing database to drop and recreate all the tables with the new data

Can anyone suggest a better way to manage this process?
