Subject [jira] Commented: (MIME4J-77) Decide Whether MimeException should extend IOException
Date Sat, 01 Nov 2008 18:11:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MIME4J-77?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12644525#action_12644525

Robert Burrell Donkin commented on MIME4J-77:
---------------------------------------------

Markus - Mime4j is a IO library. One fault shared by many early attempts at java libraries
was a proliferation of meaningless top level exceptions. The top level API of an IO library
should throw IOExceptions.

Oleg - I'm happy to follow the strategy you outline. I think that there are some corner cases
where it might be difficult to distinguish between the cases (recoverable and not) but I don't
think this should be a major worry.

Commiting this patch is fine by me.
