Subject Re: JavaMail APIs
Date Sat, 16 Aug 2003 09:01:43 GMT
JavaMail APIs (initial spec) are now available in the 
Geronimo/specs/javamail (and Geronimo/specs/activation as a 
placeholder). At present, the APIs are complete in the sense that all 
methods are present; however, they are not fully functional in the 
sense that I've not implemented all the methods yet :-)

I've also yet to write the mail transport/pop clients, so at present 
it's a set of APIs that you can use to write JavaMail programs, just 
not run them ;-)

I think it ought to go into commons, eventually. That's why I was 
reluctant to suggest it going into the specs/j2ee directory (even 
though it's a required part of the J2EE spec).

My plan was to develop it in here, since I want to be involved with the 
rest of the Geronimo project as well.

Long-term, I'd expect it to move to commons-javamail-api and 
commons-javamail-implementation or some such; then /both/ Geronimo and 
James can use it.

Of course, I'm not even a committer  (yet :-) so I probably don't have 
a huge say in such things, but that's IMHO.
