It would be nice to get access to all the keys of a specific cache from org.springframework.cache.Cache, in the same way possible for the Ehcache net.sf.ehcache.Cache version.

Affects: 3.1 RC2

It's unlikely we'll ever introduce such a method because, while on a local cache everything is in memory and this call would not create issues, in a distributed environment it would be unreliable.
Consider a cache with 100k items - if you ask for the keys, most likely you'll end up with an OOM.

Use the native cache API - that gives you the feature you want right now, with minimal effort.
