Subject Re: put same key

If you do plain puts, you will get the same guarantees as if you were
updating a simple concurrent hash map - these updates will be ordered in
some undefined way and will happen one after another. Of course in the grid
backups will be updated in a consistent manner, so you will have the same
data on primary and backup nodes regardless of which of the two updates
happened first.
Note that there are also other update primitives that give you better
control over the cache contents, such as putIfAbsent, replace
(compare-and-set, basically).

If you need even more fine-grained control over an update, you can use
transactional cache, which allows you to lock a value for the update, so
you can make sure that update will happen only if needed. Below is a
pseudo-code for this case.

try (Transaction tx = ignite.transactions().txStart(PESSIMISTIC,
    Object val = cache.get("key"); // get() will acquire a lock for this
key. Other threads will not be able to update the key until transaction is

    if (val satisfies some condition) {
         cache.put("key", updatedValue);
    // else transaction will be rolled back.

Hope this helps,
