Subject Update conflicts?
Date Tue, 05 Apr 2011 21:46:10 GMT
Dear all,

I'm trying to play around with updates and i'm bumping into some problems.

Let's image we have to clients that poll a document from the server at
the same time and get the same _rev.
Then one of them updates the doc based on the _rev it got:
[root@xkitten ~]# curl -X PUT -d
Then another one tries to update the doc based on the same exact _rev:
[root@xkitten ~]# curl -X PUT -d
{"error":"conflict","reason":"Document update conflict."}
[root@xkitten ~]#

Is there a way to avoid this?! (like...make the update just create a
new _rev or something)??

Ideally, we would be able to update without specifying the _rev, just
posting (or, in this case PUTting) to the document...


Thank you,
