How can I test the failover capability without taking the server sout of standby mode? As I understand it the database will not function in standby mode, of am i wrong abut that. In our particular case, files are sent to our software program, tomcat is used to processes the files using the database and sends the files back out in a different format.

Any insight into this situation on how all this might work?
