Re: InstantDB: Connection established during importing data


If an InstantDB database A is currently open in another JVM then you will
receive errors if you try to import from it. If you are certain that A is a
readonly database, then you can safely set recoveryPolicy=1 in a.prp. If A
could have been updated then should not try to import from it until it has
been safely shut down.

If A is closed when you do the import then it should work - see the attached
