Subject Re: Concurrent Access to Dynamic Resources
Date Thu, 10 Sep 2009 03:48:44 GMT
Hi Hiranya,
     If you will change the localEntries variable from HashMap to a
Hashtable for storing endpoints and sequences everything will be ok because
Hashtables are synchronized. You don't have to synchronize the methods.
     i don't think that it there will be anything really significant
performance impact if you use a Hashtable.
