public abstract class CyclicTimeouts<T extends CyclicTimeouts.Expirable> extends java.lang.Object implements Destroyable
An implementation of a timeout that manages many
expirableentities whose timeouts are mostly cancelled or re-scheduled.
A typical scenario is for a parent entity to manage the timeouts of many children entities.
When a new entity is created, call
schedule(Expirable)with the new entity so that this instance can be aware and manage the timeout of the new entity.
Eventually, this instance wakes up and iterates over the entities provided by
iterator(). During the iteration, each entity:
- may never expire (see
CyclicTimeouts.Expirable.getExpireNanoTime(); the entity is ignored
- may be expired;
onExpired(Expirable)is called with that entity as parameter
- may expire at a future time; the iteration records the earliest expiration time among all non-expired entities
When the iteration is complete, this instance is re-scheduled with the earliest expiration time calculated during the iteration.

All Methods Instance Methods Abstract Methods Concrete Methods Modifier and Type Method Description
protected abstract java.util.Iterator<T>
protected abstract boolean
onExpired(T expirable)Invoked during the iteration when the given entity is expired.
schedule(T expirable)Manages the timeout of a new entity.
public CyclicTimeouts(Scheduler scheduler)
protected abstract java.util.Iterator<T> iterator()
- the entities to iterate over when this instance expires
protected abstract boolean onExpired(T expirable)
Invoked during the iteration when the given entity is expired.
This method may be invoked multiple times, and even concurrently, for the same expirable entity and therefore the expiration of the entity, if any, should be an idempotent action.
expirable- the entity that is expired
- whether the entity should be removed from the iterator via
public void schedule(T expirable)
Manages the timeout of a new entity.
expirable- the new entity to manage the timeout for
