Subject [jira] [Commented] (MIME4J-98) Review Use Of java.util.Date
Date Sun, 02 Sep 2012 21:00:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MIME4J-98?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13447030#comment-13447030

Ioan Eugen Stan commented on MIME4J-98:
---------------------------------------

Some conclusions after discussion on the mailing list:

- adding an extra dependency is not good 
- an optional module that uses JodaTime to decode MIME fields with dates would be a plus,
although java.util.Date is to be used in Message interface

- extra: Message and other DOM interfaces implementations could be made immutable - this will
help in thread safety.

> java.util.Date is widely used but is not particularly well suited to protocol work and
parsing can be slow. Consider switching to something more suitable.
