Subject Re: Attaching a Fencing Token to a Leader Latch
Date Tue, 19 Jul 2016 11:51:46 GMT
There’s a constructor in LeaderLatch that takes an “id”. That id is the payload for the
lock node.

	public LeaderLatch(CuratorFramework client, String latchPath, String id)

You can call getParticipants() to get the IDs of all participants in the latch.
