I assume that you are talking about the Cache.Insert method for ASP.Net web
pages.
Both expiration times establish a time after which the cache entry will be
invalidated (although it could be invalidated before that time if the server
needs the memory for other purposes). The difference is that the sliding
expiration is cleared after every access to that cache variable, so that,
for example, if you set the sliding expiration to 10 minutes, the cache will
only expire when 10 minutes pass without anyone accessing the web page that
uses that cache entry. On the other hand, the absolute expiration time is,
well, "absolute", meaning that the entry will always expire when that time
comes, regardless of wether it has been used in the meantime or not.
