depends on what your looking for. if your looking for a value to be within a
collection on a single persistent object, you can utilize this, but at a
cost of write concurrency, as it creates a chokepoint for multiple writers.
for multiple persistent objects in the object database you'll need something
additional. gary's reply gives a more technical understanding of the
solutions. another simple solution is to use the unique value as the
object's key within its container.
