Subject Re: Why PathChildrenCache does not have "cversion"?
Date Wed, 21 Oct 2015 04:34:52 GMT
Thanks for the reply.

Sorry for the ambiguous meaning of “path node”. By saying “path node”, I mean the
common root node of the children.

So PathChildrenCach does store the children nodes Stat, but it does not store the root node's

For instance, I have created a PathChildrenCach cache = new PathChildrenCache(“/path/to/node”).
I can get the Stat of “/path/to/node/child1”, but I cannot get the Stat of “/path/to/node”
directly from the cache.
