Thanks, that's helpful. Now I need to figure out if / how this is surfaced in the Java 1.1.1 client (I don't seem to see it anywhere, but maybe I'm missing something).

If a counter doesn't exist, it's created when you increment/decrement the counter. Otherwise it returns your API's equivalent of "nothing to see".

So, in CorrugatedIron, you'd call RiakClient.IncrementCounter("bucket", "counter", 1);

After that command completes, the counter has a value of 1; assuming no other increments are made.

To initialize to a different value, simply increment/decrement the counter to the chosen value and begin from there.
