Subject Re: setData question
Date Wed, 30 Nov 2011 15:20:40 GMT
Yeah talking about through a create, sorry not setData.  If the node
already exists and you call setData is it a delete and then a set?  I
ask because I'm trying to track down an issue where the data on the
node is null.  It's hard to reproduce but it appears that if the node
exists and I call setData I sometimes see a node with no information.
My guess is that if client 1 calls setData on a node that exists it
first deletes, then if client 2 comes in and tries to read the data he
sees nothing, then the set actually happens for client 1.  I'm just
guessing though so trying to figure out if that is how it should work
or not.
