That's what I was wondering, and I thought the newExpiry should take 
precedence, since each time I re-use a connection, I'd typically want to 
extend its life time. I guess re-using connections is my objective when 
using a connection pool, and thus, with each re-use the life time should 
extend, unless some request causes a connection close or non-reusable 
event where its discarded.

When I created the original connection I state that it can be reused 
within another 10 minutes - i.e. until 10:10. When I do re-use it at 
10:05, if I am to call updateExpiry() again, that indicates that I want 
to now "update" the expiry time which is currently set. Now if I say I 
want to re-use this again in the next 10 minutes, i.e. until 10:15, the 
new expiry time should be the max of validUntil and newExpiry

thanks and regards
