Subject Re: Atomically setting a node's data while having leadership
Date Wed, 11 Sep 2013 16:09:30 GMT
I think it could be done with a transaction. i.e. 

                .setData().forPath("/some/other/path...", data)

So, we'd need to either expose the path/name of the leader's lock ZNode or make this a method
of LeaderSelector (and other lock-oriented recipes).

to set data in a node. But, the leader may receive a message saying to relinquish leadership
immediately at any point in time. So the question is, is it possible to set this data while
making sure that we're still the leader?
