Subject Re: JNDI Mailet Configuration
Date Tue, 04 Feb 2003 21:10:05 GMT

Thanks Harmeet.  I'll take a look at DSML.

As for JNDI/XML being heavyweight - you are correct.  However, it is no
longer being proposed as part of the Mailet API.  Apparently (based on
Noel's latest comments) it is to be an optional part of the spec.

Note also that any existing J2EE appserver that wants to add a mailet
container to their bag of tricks will already have JNDI, anyway.




There is no magic.

I think using XML/JNDI for mailet configuration may be heavy weight. A
simple DTD as suggested earlier (by Danny? Aaron ? not sure) may be good

However if JNDI/XML is the direction to take, DSML (or subset) may be good
candidate for Schema. It provides XML mapping to directory information and
there are DSML providers for JNDI.. Spec is at
