Subject Re: DO NOT REPLY [Bug 31934] - [mail] No smtp.jar in dependencies list
Date Fri, 29 Oct 2004 08:29:44 GMT
Not sure how to display the messages in a client if out to the file.
In most cases it would be fine, but utimately would need to check on a
client anyway. I don't actually mind spamming myself, it seems a way
to testing beyond the scope of the unit tests..

My opinion on the smtp depenency is that its part of the mail api and
the core mail api and activation framework are required anyhow. But
then again I only really care because (again IMO) the only important
thing that as well as the unit tests being run there is a effective
means of checking the output with a client. Otherwise if someone
writes a bug report for some output issue they'd still be no way of
seeing what the problem is, and folk letting stuff through because it
passed unit tests that perhaps were'nt failing anyway.

Perhaps I'll think about a maven task that does this, and echos a "You
need so and so jar to run this task"..
