Implementation Notes

If the "@old" value sent by the client in the HTTP request, along with the "@new" value, does not match the existing value having key in region, then a 409 - CONFLICT error is returned indicating the mismatch in expected state. The "@old" and current value must match in order for the key to be assigned the "@new" value.

If a "CONFLICT" occurs, it is a simple matter for the client to issue a HTTP GET request for the Key (GET /gemfire-api/v1/orders/222) to get a updated copy of the value. CAS is similar to optimistic locking (as opposed to optimistic locking assuming the value will change between the time a client requests a value and subsequently updates the value) in that it assumes the client's state is up-to-date when the client tries to update, but if not then fail, hence the 409 - CONFLICT.
