I've added a link to the email thread to ZOOKEEPER-723 . I've also created a new JIRA for the approach I've suggested ZOOKEEPER-834  I will try to provide a patch after I finish my GSoC assignment.
For me it seems like a good idea to allow a session to create / own an ephemeral tree and not just leafs under persistent znodes.  https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-723  https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-834 On Fri, Aug 6, 2010 at 7:21 PM, Patrick Hunt <ph...@apache.org> wrote: > Take a look at the following.
