Java client: understanding set and get operations
I would like to understand, why the java client obviously (observed via the web UI - it states half the number of ops beeing reads and the other half beeing writes) tries to get the entry for the key I want to set via the clients
set(key, expiry, value) method. I would have assumed that the set operation does not require a previous get operation on the key since the docs say it overwrites any existing entry for the same key. So why the get?
Could someone clarify please?
