Subject Status: JavaMail API implementation now at Alpha quality
Date Fri, 12 Sep 2003 12:45:48 GMT
I have submitted a patch [*] covering the majority of work that I have 
done on implementing the JavaMail API. Importantly, this allows 
developers to now instantiate the MimeMessage class, and for simple 
(text formats) messages, the MimeMessage should be usable by those 
implementing transports/stores.

There are some unimplemented features; it cannot yet handle multipart 
messages, and there are issues with non-ASCII encodings at present. 
Hopefully these issues will be ironed out with test cases that break 
the API and thus can be fixed. I would otherwise personally raise a bug 
to record each of these cases, but I am not sure this is within the 
standard use of the bug tracking tool by the geronimo team.

I am off on holiday for a couple of weeks, and access is likely to be 
sporadic; I won't be doing any coding in any case. I hope that this set 
of code gives other developers the necessary base framework to continue 
implementing JavaMail providers.
