32/**
33 * Represents fields that are protected for concurrency by the copy-on-write semantics.
34 *
35 * <p>
36 * Fields marked by this annotation always holds on to an immutable collection.
37 * A change to the collection must be done by first creating a new collection
38 * object, making changes, then replacing the reference atomically.
39 *
40 * <p>
41 * This allows code to access the field without synchronization, and
42 * greatly reduces the risk of dead-lock bugs.
43 *
44 * <p>
45 * The field marked with this annotation usually needs to be marked as
46 * <tt>volatile</tt>.
