    exact semantic meaning of HashConfigurationBuilder#numOwners() ?

    Ben Cotton Newbie

      the 5.3 Javadoc for HashConfigurationBuilder#numOwners(int numOwners) reads simply


      "Number of cluster-wide replicas for each cache entry".


      Just to be absoultely certain, if I specify numOwners=1 as the method argument then exactly 1 instance of the Entry will appear on the grid at exactly one node (i.e. no replications of the Entry)?   Or does it literally mean "number of cluster-wide replicas" .. in which case I would specify numOwners=0 (does that ever make sense to indicate numOwners=0?) to indicate that zero replicas (and only the 1 original Entry) are to appear on the grid?
