ReplicatedMap offers a distributed
java.util.Map::clear implementation, but due to the asynchronous nature and the
weakly consistency of it, there is no point in time where you can say the map is empty. Every node
applies that to its local dataset in "a near point in time".
If you need a definite point in time to empty the map, you may want to consider using a lock around the
You can simulate the
clear method by locking your user codebase and executing a remote operation that will
DistributedObject::destroy to destroy the node's own proxy and storage of the ReplicatedMap. A new proxy instance
and storage will be created on the next retrieval of the ReplicatedMap using
You will have to reallocate the ReplicatedMap in your code. Afterwards, just release the lock when finished.
