Subject Question about JavaSpaces functionality
Date Mon, 31 Jan 2011 03:42:37 GMT
Suppose thread A writes an item to a JavaSpace, thread B attempts to 
read it, and A's call to the space's proxy write method happens-before 
B's call to the space's proxy read method. There are no transactions 
involved

Should the read always succeed?

In other words, should a happens-before relationship between two actions 
in a client imply a corresponding happens-before relationship between 
the corresponding actions in the actual space, without depending on 
transaction semantics?

This question affects whether I'm working on a bug in outrigger or in 
one of its tests.

Thanks for any information.

Patricia
