@carlozancanaro You put an element into it, after a certain amount of time it will be removed, unless fetched, updated or "poked".

@shadowfacts @carlozancanaro I suppose so, the main thing I would need to use it for would be to make things purge themselves after a delay. So it would require a specific interface and callbacks for when the objects are purged. Plus some sort of iteration thing for expired tasks on the ticks.


@gudenau @shadowfacts It looks like Guava has something similar to what you want.


You can add a removal listener to the cache, which isn't mentioned in that answer but is in the javadoc.

I couldn't help myself

🎵 MapMaker, MapMaker, make me map
🎵 Find me a find, catch me a catch
🎵 MapMaker, MapMaker, look through your impls
🎵And make me a perfect map

@shadowfacts @carlozancanaro I have never seen that play.

@gudenau @carlozancanaro it's a (bad) parody of this song from the musical: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=59Hj7bp38f8
