Subject [jira] Created: (MIME4J-90) Consistent parsing of header field names
Date Thu, 04 Dec 2008 19:44:44 GMT
Consistent parsing of header field names

                 Key: MIME4J-90
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MIME4J-90
             Project: JAMES Mime4j
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 0.5
            Reporter: Markus Wiederkehr
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 0.6

RFC 822 defines a field as:
    field       =  field-name ":" [ field-body ] CRLF
    field-name  =  1*<any CHAR, excluding CTLs, SPACE, and ":">

This implies that a field name must consist of at least one character and may not contain
spaces or tabs; not even trailing ones.

Currently o.a.j.mime4j.parser.AbstractEntity#parseField accepts empty field names while o.a.j.mime4j.field.Field#parse
accepts trailing spaces and tabs.
