ProCore is a semantic database.

Random Q & As

The data written to a persistent store can be INVALUABLE.

Q: In case of DB corrupts, is there a recovery plan?

A: Change set data combined with transaction journaling provides safety against crashes and power outages etc. If data gets corrupted anyway, backups must be used to recover data.

Q: Is there a backup plan?

A: Periodical full binary backup of the database can be done. Critical parts of the data can also be stored periodically as Transferable Graphs (this format does not depend on the ProCore version).

Arguments to Server

The only argument the server accepts is name of file containing configuration arguments. If an argument is not given the name server.cnfg is used. If file is not found or there is error during parsing of the file server does not start. An example of configuration file, which also documents the parameters that can be given, is found in org.simantics.db.undocore.OS.ARCH plugin.
