Current Javadocs for IMap.putAll() (available here: do not mention the fact that .putAll() is not atomic.

It could partially complete. In a non WAN-replicated environment this might not be an issue, but when WAN replication is being used with <queue-full-behavior>THROW_EXCEPTION</queue-full-behavior> there's a significant possibility that putAll() will fail at some point, and a partial update will have taken place across the WAN. This partial completion nature of putAll() is not documented, and it would be helpful if it was.
