Subject at-least-once guarantee?
Date Wed, 07 Aug 2013 23:00:47 GMT
I wonder why at-least-once guarantee is easier to maintain than
exactly-once (in that the latter requires 2PC while the former does not ,
according to
http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/people/srikanth/netdb11/netdb11papers/netdb11-final12.pdf
 )

if u achieve at-least-once guarantee, you are able to assert between 2
cases "nothing" vs ">=1 delivered", which can be seen as 2 different
answers 0 and 1. isn't this as hard as the common Byzantine general problem?

Thanks
Yang
