Let's say I have set up continuous bidirectional replication in CouchDB:
HostA <-> HostB.
As far as I understand, this is the simplest master-master replication - so both HostA and HostB accept reads and writes. Is it possible for the client to be transparet on which database he operates? I use Ektorp as a Java driver for CouchDB. When I initialize the connection I have to provide the IP address, for example http://HostA.mydomain.com:5984. What happens when this host is actually down? I would like to achieve transparency, like in RavenDB's client library - when HostA is down, it tries to connect to the other replicated hosts (http://ravendb.net/docs/article-page/3.0/csharp/client-api/bundles/how-client-integrates-with-replication-bundle).
In other words - is CouchDB aware of its replication targets so that the client doesn't have to manually choose the currently-alive host?
