Core Data is not going anywhere

  • How do I make sure that there is only one copy of a particular object in memory?
  • How do I access enormous datasets without pulling everything into memory?
  • How do I make transactional updates to a set of objects?
  • How do I keep the data in memory up-to-date with what is on disk?
  • How can I make long running updates in the background, while my UI continues to use the same data store?
  • How do I merge in changes from other devices?
