Date Wed, 03 Jan 2007 00:21:27 GMT


Ben Speakmon updated EMAIL-35:

    Attachment: HtmlEmailTest.patch

> [email] Embedding raw DataSource Attachments
> --------------------------------------------
>                 Key: EMAIL-35
>                 URL:
>             Project: Commons Email
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.0
>         Environment: Operating System: All
> Platform: All
>            Reporter: Brandon Wolfe
>         Attachments:, HtmlEmail.patch, HtmlEmailTest.patch
> I kick myself for not submitting this prior to 1.0.  An important feature
> missing from org.apache.commons.mail.HtmlEmail is the ability to embed an
> arbitrary DataSource object.  The current API only allows you to embed from a
> URL.  My usage of CommonsEmail often includes the generation of image data
> on-the-fly, where it does not exist at a pre-defined URL.  
> I propose the addition of a key method:
> public String embed(DataSource datasource, String name, String cid) throws
> EmailException
> This will allow us to attach our own datasources in addition to defining our own
> content-ids.  Helper methods can be created to auto-generate CIDs when needed
> and allow for backwards compatability.  I've found that being able to provide my
> own defined CIDs has been very helpful in referencing them in my velocity email
> templates.
> I will attach the current EnhancedHtmlEmail class that I have been using for a
> year or so.  It extends HtmlEmail to provide the methods explained above.  I
> would hope to have this capability introduced into the HtmlEmail class.
> Feel free to contact me to discuss further!  Thanks.
