Subject [jira] Commented: (IMAP-151) Replace MailboxMapper.existsMailboxStartingWith() with hasChildren()

------------------------------------

Hi Tim,

using Node.hasNodes() will not work with the current jcr layout. I'm not sure we should adjust
it. The problem is this:

If you have two mailboxes with the names:
* INBOX
* INBOX.test

If you now remove INBOX you need to be sure that INBOX.test still exists, thats an IMAP RFC
requirement. 

So I dedicited to just create a folder with the fullname of the Mailbox. But I agree from
the idea of having Folders it would more sence to put them in Hierachical order..

> existsMailboxStartingWith() is only used to find out whether a mailbox has children.
For some implementations it's more efficient to use another mechanism (e.g. JCR nodes have
a hasNodes() method). Thus existsMailboxStartingWith() should be removed, hasChildren() should
be added and the implementations should make use of that.
