Subject [VOTE] Promote Email to Commons Proper
Date Mon, 15 Nov 2004 11:10:19 GMT
Email exhibits all of the qualities of a component that should be in
Commons proper:
- It's small and focused.
- It's API is well defined
- It has good unit test coverage. It has also been tested in real world
email applications (Turbine 2.3, 2.4, 3.0, Scarab).
- It has automated nightly builds, website, and Maven all working
- It has incubated in the sandbox for long enough to become stable (97%

Email is a mature component that should move to Commons proper so it can
be released to the public.  Here's my +1.

The website has additional information:

Here's the component proposal for reference:

The Email Component contains a set of Java classes providing a
thin convenience layer over JavaMail.


The Email component is dependent upon the following external
components for development and use:
    * Java Development Kit  (Version 1.2 or later)
    * JavaMail . (Version 1.2 or later)
    * JavaBeans Activation Framework (Version 1.0.1 or later) - dependency
of JavaMail.
    * JUnit Testing Framework (Version 3.7 or later) - for unit tests only,
not required for deployment
    * Dumbster Fake SMTP (Version 1.0.3 or later) - for unit tests only, not
required for deployment

(3)  Required Jakarta-Commons Resources

CVS Repository - New directory email in the jakarta-commons CVS

Mailing List - Discussions will take place on the general
    commons-dev mailing list.  To help
    list subscribers identify messages of interest, it is suggested that
    the message subject of messages about this component be prefixed with

    category, with appropriate version identifiers as needed.
