    RunnableScheduledFuture<V>, ScheduledFuture<V>


    public interface Delayed
    extends Comparable<Delayed>
    A mix-in style interface for marking objects that should be acted upon after a given delay.

    An implementation of this interface must define a compareTo method that provides an ordering consistent with its getDelay method.
