I simply wish to be able to delete a key that has a zero expiry<br>period and then immediately be able to add a key of the same name.<br>The reason that I cannot use set is because if it already exists in<br>the cache I do not want to replace the value.
<br></blockquote></div><br>I have a somewhat similar requirement, but I'm curious about this specific approach. It sounds as if an object may go into the cache with a given key, but in some scenarios if that key is already in use, that object would use a different key in the cache. Is that accurate?
