Class GenericPollingPolicy<Retry, Backoff> (2.18.0)

Construct a polling policy from existing Retry and Backoff policies.

A polling policy can be built by composing a retry and backoff policy. For example, to create a polling policy that "retries N times, waiting a fixed period between retries" you could compose the "try N times" retry policy with the "wait a fixed period between retries" backoff policy.

This class makes it easier to create such composed polling policies.
