Add convenience methods to set a message body and content-type at the same time
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: MIME4J-99
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MIME4J-99
             Project: JAMES Mime4j
          Issue Type: New Feature
    Affects Versions: 0.5
            Reporter: Markus Wiederkehr
            Assignee: Markus Wiederkehr
             Fix For: 0.6


Consider this code fragment to build a multipart message:

        Header header = new Header();
        header.addField(Field.parse("Content-Type",
                "multipart/mixed;\r\n\tboundary=\""
                        + MimeUtil.createUniqueBoundary() + "\""));

        Multipart multipart = new Multipart("mixed");

        Message message = new Message();
        message.setHeader(header);
        message.setBody(multipart);

Aside from the problem that the subtype "mixed" has to be specified twice this is just overly
long and error-prone. Instead a convenience method setMultipart could be added to Entity that
sets the message body and also sets the content-type header field accordingly. The code fragment
could be rewritten as:

        Multipart multipart = new Multipart("mixed");

        Message message = new Message();
        message.setMultipart(multipart);

Similar convenience methods can be added for text/* and message/rfc822 bodies.
