Subject Re: How to use atomic operations on C++ thin client?
Date Tue, 19 Mar 2019 12:27:29 GMT

You can use pointer semantics [1] to differ nulls from zeroes. It won't
work for primitive types (as int), but it is a rare case, really, that your
value is a primitive type. And even if you want to use value, that only
contains single int it is simple enough to make a class-wrapper.

Here's how you use it:

IgniteClient client = IgniteClient::Start(cfg);

cache::CacheClient<KeyType, ValueType*> cache =
    client.GetCache<KeyType, ValueType*>("cacheName");

ValueType* val = cache.Get(key);

if (val == nullptr)

// Do not forget to release memory.
delete val;

Also, you can use smart pointers to avoid manual memory management.
Also, it is possible specialize BinaryType<T> for any wrapper class or class
template, for example boost::optional or similar.
