Hello. I have code in jquery which reads a remote database. I am worried about what could happen if that database for some reason goes down. I was wondering if there is a way to switch to another database if the read from the first one fails? Is there some way to know if the read fails?
Thanks.

As far as I know, jQuery or javascript cannot access database. Server side programming is necessary to connect to database (like asp, jsp, php or coldfusion etc.).

jQuery may trigger an ajax call (or a browser request) to the server which inturn talks to database and returns data.

You can switch to another database if the read form one database fails.
a. check connection for first database, if it fails connect to second database
b. If first database connects and read returns 0 records from database,  connect to 2nd database and read.
you can also use try catch blocks in your server side coding to achieve the same.
