This property provides the ability to access a specific element in the collection by using the following syntax: myCollection[key]. You can also use the Item property to add new elements by setting the value of a key that does not exist in the dictionary; for example, myCollection["myNonexistentKey"] = myValue However, if the specified key already exists in the dictionary, setting the Item property overwrites the old value. In contrast, the Add method does not modify existing elements. This property is applicable to local as well as distributed region. For local region instance - Puts/Gets a new value into an entry in this region in the local cache only. For distributed region instance - Puts/Gets a new value into an entry in this region and this operation is propogated to the Gemfire cache server to which it is connected with.
