James G,

Can you explain some more about this statement please?

"3) Collections or remote iterators, not both.

"contents" returns a remote iterator named "MatchSet", while "take (with
collection)" returns a collection.   I can understand the argument
behind both use cases, but not necessarily the argument for using both


This has been heavily discussed in the past and contents(), by virtue of
it's non-destructive nature (unlike take) needs something akin to a remote
iterator to be practical/useful. Multiple takes allow you to eventually
exhaust a space's contents, multiple reads won't do similarly.

So, given I'm scarred with the previous efforts of space implementation
including JavaSpace05 I fear my past is colouring my thinking so I'd like to
understand more.
