Subject Re: setData question
Date Wed, 30 Nov 2011 15:38:07 GMT
setData should only change the data stored on the node.  Bot setData and
getData returns a Stat object for the node. Stat.getVersion returns the
version of the node and the version is incremented each time the node is
modified. You may use that to track the order in which the operations are
executed.
