Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-4910) Problem in geronimo-javamail_1.4_spec

Problem in geronimo-javamail_1.4_spec
-------------------------------------

                 Key: GERONIMO-4910
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-4910
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: mail
            Reporter: Simon von Janowsky


When a url ist set to receive email, the username is extracted correctly using UrlName class,
but when querying  the imap server the system defined username is used instead.

This is because the username in the connect Method in Service.java overrides the username
from the url. See this code excerpt from javax.mail.Service.class in geronimo-javamail_1.4_spec-1.6.jar


<code class="Service.java method="connect(String host, int port, String user, String password)">

       if (user == null) {
            // first choice is from the url, if we have
            if (url != null) {
                user = url.getUsername();
                // make sure we get the password from the url, if we can.
                if (password == null) {
                    password = url.getPassword();
                }
                // user still null?  We have several levels of properties to try yet
                if (user == null) {
                	if (protocol != null) {
                		user = session.getProperty("mail." + protocol + ".user");
                	}
                }
            }

            // this may still be null...get the global mail property
            if (user == null) {
                user = session.getProperty("mail.user");
            }

            // finally, we try getting the system defined user name
		// HERE THE USER IS ALWAYS OVERWRITTEN
		// HERE THE USER IS ALWAYS OVERWRITTEN
		// HERE THE USER IS ALWAYS OVERWRITTEN
            try {
                user = System.getProperty("user.name");
            } catch (SecurityException e) {
                // we ignore this, and just us a null username.
            }
        }
