@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.
