Subject [jira] Created: (MIME4J-19) Pull Parser
Date Wed, 11 Jul 2007 20:39:05 GMT
Pull Parser

                 Key: MIME4J-19
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MIME4J-19
             Project: Mime4j
          Issue Type: New Feature
    Affects Versions: 0.3
            Reporter: Jochen Wiedmann
             Fix For: 0.4

The attached patch introduces a new class called MimeTokenStream, which is a "Pull Parser"
for MIME documents. The class is basically a rewrite of the MimeStreamParser. The patch does
also provide a rewrite of the MimeStreamParser itself, based on the MimeTokenStream.

Pull parsers are technically a little bit more difficult. However, from the users perspective,
they are much more preferrable, because writing an application on top of a pull parser is
much easier than based on an event handler.

I would like to rewrite the commons-fileupload component based on mime4j. However, as commons-fileupload
provides a pull parser API, we depend on the presence of a similar API in mime4j. Not providing
a pull parser API would mean, that we'd need to duplicate mime4j code into commons-fileupload,
which is certainly not desirable.
