Subject Re: zookeeper discussion on watches.

Hi Sunil,

Have you gone over the developer's guide docs on the website:
It is pretty simple to use watches and the text on that page should
almost be all you need to use it.

Also, the zkCli.sh CLI program does show how to set a watch when you
type "help" on it:

> get path [watch]

So for example, if you want to set a watch from the CLI on the znode
/hbase/master, you may do:

> get /hbase/master true

(The new CLI format on trunk is to do as "get -w /hbase/master"
instead. But the above should work and warn even if you are on trunk

Then if "printwatches" is on (it is on by default), you should be able
to see any changes made to that znode by other processes.

For instance, if I deleted the node via a "delete /hbase/master", I'd
see this on the shell:


WatchedEvent state:SyncConnected type:NodeDeleted path:/hbase/hbaseid

Hope this helps!
