It would be nice to be able to set somekind of simple cron expression when a cache element is considered expired.

This can be used to expire all elements in the midnight etc. 3:00am

cronExpiry=”0 0 3 ? * *”

Will expire at 3:00 am at midnight

To start witdh we do not need as complex configurations for setting day, month etc. Most important is the times for specifying a certain time a day.

Maybe the cron parser code could be donated from another open-source project:

These projects has a cron parser:

  • oscache
  • quartz

If you need a helping hand with some of the features I will be able to help.

I actually use a quartz event to clear some caches periodically. That uses cache.removeAll().
