Subject [jira] Commented: (MIME4J-114) Efficient Read Access To Parts Of A Parsed Document
Date Sat, 07 Feb 2009 08:32:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MIME4J-114?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12671428#action_12671428

Robert Burrell Donkin commented on MIME4J-114:

I wonder whether it would be reasonable for Mime4J to efficiently record the number of bytes
that it has processed  and then expose this information on state transition. 

Opinions and alternative suggestions welcomed

> Use Case
> --------------
> Consider a large MIME document stored (as a single document) in a medium which allows
random access to the bits (for example,  a BLOB in a data store or a file.) 
> I parse the document once using Mime4J and store the meta-data (for example, in a data
store) so that I can read this data many times without loading and reparsing this large document
> I wish to be able to read efficiently a part of the document without loading the whole,
and this may happen frequently
