    Can we make a switch over from one vDB to another vDB's  from Delphix end.

    Scenario : 

    1) Application is connected to vDB-1
    2) Now wanted to Switch from vDB-1 to vDB-2.

    Can we trigger this process with out changing the connecting string at the application level.

    Please suggest your inputs on this..

    Unless i'm missing something here, assuming you are using Oracle, wouldn't it be simpler to just use Oracles already built in feature, Services, to do this?

    1. Have your application connect to the service "MyApp"
    2. Register "MyApp" with vDB-1
    3. When you want to "switch", then deregister "MyApp" from vDB-1 and register it with vDB-2.

    "MyApp" is an example of what you could name your service.  The following Oracle document gives an overview of services and how to manage them.
