Subject [jira] Commented: (MIME4J-118) MIME stream parser handles non-ASCII fields incorrectly
Date Tue, 24 Feb 2009 13:46:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MIME4J-118?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12676270#action_12676270

Robert Burrell Donkin commented on MIME4J-118:
----------------------------------------------

I suspect that there may be longer term issues with this general approach but i think we should
accept that the current proposal is good enough for this release. release early, release often.

I think that the best way to approach is to preserve the original document together with boundary
meta-data. In other words, that a 'Content-Type' header starts at byte 99 in the document
rather than trying to slice up the document and re-assemble from lots of small byte buffers.
But this is related to other issues which should wait until after this release so I think
we should patch and look to ship.

> Presently MIME stream parser handles non-ASCII fields incorrectly. Binary field content
gets converted to its textual representation too early in the parsing process using simple
byte to char cast. The decision about appropriate char encoding should be left up to individual
ContentHandler implementations.
