A simple way: Create something in the database that your program will check
to see if the database is valid or not. Could be a SP that returns 0 if the
database is in production or 1 if not. [The SP could not be a very good
idea, since your user could be already connected into the database, it's
just to give you an idea].

the other Database, just by "Switching" the Aliases. My application doesnt
know wich application is it connected and it works exactly the same. I dont
want this to happen. How can my application notice when it is working with
another Database?
