Re: Retrieve Put timestamp
What do you mean by using TS as version? Are you determining the ts long value before and then setting it in the Put object? If so, I think you can use a specific cell as a counter (Sequence in Oracle language, or Auto Increment column in MySQL). In that case of course you need the value of the TS so that's not a problem.
