Interface GridNodeLocal<K,V>

All Superinterfaces:
ConcurrentMap<K,V>, GridMetadataAware, Map<K,V>, Serializable

public interface GridNodeLocal<K,V>
extends ConcurrentMap<K,V>, GridMetadataAware

Defines interface for node-local storage.

GridNodeLocal is similar to ThreadLocal in a way that its values are not distributed and kept only on local node (similar like ThreadLocal values are attached to the current thread only). Node-local values are used primarily by closures executed from the remote nodes to keep intermediate state on the local node between executions.

GridNodeLocal essentially is a ConcurrentMap with a few additional methods, so it is fairly trivial to use.

You can get an instance of GridNodeLocal by calling Grid.nodeLocal() method.

Method Detail


V addIfAbsent(K key,
              Callable<V> dflt)
Gets the value with given key. If that value does not exist, calls given closure to get the default value, puts it into the map and returns it. If closure is null return null.

key - Key to get the value for.
dflt - Default value producing closure.
Value for the key or the value produced by the closure if key does not exist in the map. Return null if key is not found and closure is null.


V addIfAbsent(K key,
              V val)
Unlike its sibling method ConcurrentMap.putIfAbsent(Object, Object) this method returns current mapping from the map.

key - Key.
val - Value to put if one does not exist.
Current mapping for a given key.
