    Each time a view controller and a view is called, the context manages the instantiation of the context

    nodes. However, when the view is no longer visible, it is removed from memory. This also removes the

    context and context nodes and the data.

    However, sometimes it makes sense to keep the data in memory while a view is not displayed. For

    example, to pass data from one view to another or in case the user wants to navigate back to the view.

    Data can be shared between different view controllers so the retrieval of data from the BOL can be

    reduced. This can be realized by custom controllers that have an unrestricted lifespan.


    I just copied this from Cook book. Hope you got whats it for..
