NAME ^

Bio::DB::Failover - A Bio::DB::RandomAccessI compliant class which wraps a prioritized list of DBs

SYNOPSIS ^

    $failover = Bio::DB::Failover->new();

    $failover->add_database($db);

    # fail over Bio::DB::RandomAccessI.pm

    # this will check each database in priority, returning when
    # the first one succeeds

    $seq = $failover->get_Seq_by_id($id);

DESCRIPTION ^

This module provides fail over access to a set of Bio::DB::RandomAccessI objects.

CONTACT ^
