        Warning: copying information between stores may produce differences in many aspects. The range of changes depends both on the original Resource structure and the target Resource structure. If the differences are too large, then this Aggregate may throw an exception.
        Parameters:
        resource - the resource to copy in this Aggregate.
        Returns:
        the effectively added resource. May be resource itself if it has been added verbatim.
        Throws:
        Data­Store­Exception - if the given resource can not be stored in this Aggregate.
