If I use an async version of a call in a cluster ("ensemble") what

transparently resubmit the call to the next server in the cluster and
call my async callback or is there something I need to do? The docs
aren't clear on this and searching the archive didn't give me the
answer. Another source of confusion here is that the non-async
versions do not resubmit the call - I need to do that manually.


Hi Jordan, the callbacks have a "rc" parameter that details the result of the request (result code), this will be one of KeeperException.Code, in this case CONNECTIONLOSS. You receive a connection loss result when the client has sent a request to the server but loses the connection before the server responds. You must resubmit of this request manually (usually once you reconnect to the cluster), same as for sync calls.

See these sections in the faq:

also some detail in

I agree the docs could be improved here. The java api for callback is esp. embarassing (there is none). Please enter JIRAs for any areas you'd like to see improved, including adding javadoc to the callbacks.
