Was going through one of your documents. This says under Handling conflict.
Auto merge works as follows:
• TTL (time-to-live) based: The record with the highest TTL wins
• Generation based: The record with the highest generation wins
Application merge works as follows:
• When two versions of the same data item are available in the cluster, a read of this value will return both versions, allowing the application to resolve the inconsistency.
• The client application – the only entity with knowledge of how to resolve these differences – must then re-write the data in a consistent fashion.
Wanted to know if Application based merge still works ? As Other place the options of handling conflicts are either ttl or generation.
