I am using memcached java client, and I notice two methods there:
replace(java.lang.String key, java.lang.Object value, java.util.Date
expiry) and set(java.lang.String key, java.lang.Object value,
java.util.Date expiry). In fact, I am facing the same problem, I
wonder how to customize user definied expiration policy. Thanks
