public interface AtomicMap<K,V>
extends Map<K,V>

This is a special type of Map geared for use in Infinispan. This map type supports Infinispan atomicizing writes on the cache such that a coarse grained locking is used if this map is stored in the cache, such that the entire map is locked for writes or is isolated for safe concurrent read.

This is, for all practical purposes, a marker interface that indicates that Maps of this type will be locked atomically in the cache and replicated in a fine grained manner.
