Java Client - Maps - fetch only one entry

Yes, we ended up doing that in the end. Was just a usecase where _sometimes_ the map was required as a whole, while _other times_ only a specific entry. I believe search would help with some of this, but we are still looking into that.

Thanks everyone for your help
