Subject Question of re-use within Apache Projects
Date Tue, 07 Aug 2001 20:57:22 GMT
OK, I will lead up to the subject.  I have started using 
the Mail task.  I find that I will not be able to send 
out 'attachment's.  The file attribute takes in text 
files and includes them into the body.  However, there 
are a few use cases where sending attachments after a 
build is performed makes sense (at least for me).  It 
will be easier for me to scan the set of attachments and 
look at the ones that I am interested in, instead of 
parsing through the whole mail finding out my points of 
interest.  Others might want to zip up the build.log and 
send it as an attachment, blah, blah, blah...

I am planning to improve the Mail task so that it 
becomes attachment-friendly (Do you folks think this is 
useful?).  First step is to write a Mime Encoder 
(Base64Encoder).  I notice that XML-Batik already has 
the code to perform it. 

So, my question is this:  How do I go about reusing it?
