What Happens in a Domestic Violence Case if the Victim Refuses to Testify at Trial?

Can someone still be convicted if the victim does not come to court to testify?  Does it make a difference if the victim comes to court, but then refuses to testify?  Must the prosecution dismiss the case?  Must the judge dismiss the case, similar to how if a police officer fails to appear for a traffic ticket?  The answers to these questions are not black and white.  As most lawyers are hated for saying, it matters.
