Subject Re: Multi question on using previous ops results
Date Wed, 16 May 2012 23:21:51 GMT
It looks like you are assuming that the versions of two znodes are synchronized. That seems
pretty dangerous. 

What is the higher level intent here?  Would it better to simply build a multi to update both

at basically the same time, which causes errors.   I thought I might be able to use Multi
to do this atomically, but I cannot figure out how to use the result (the version number above)
from one Op in a later Op.  Is this possible?

 For instance, sometimes I create a zookeeper node and want a "LOCK" node underneath it. 
If I follow the "recipe" and use an ephemeral sequential node as the lock, how can I refer
to sequence in a Path in subsequent Op added to a "multi" or is there any way to do it atomically?
 Sorry that was so very wordy.  What I was really trying to ask, is how do I create and lock
a node atomically?
