Subject [jira] Commented: (IMAP-178) make namespaces simple String
Date Mon, 05 Jul 2010 15:13:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IMAP-178?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12885261#action_12885261

Tim-Christian Mundt commented on IMAP-178:
------------------------------------------

Ok, that was probably a little confusing. The interface I was referring to is "org.apache.james.imap.message.response.NamespaceResponse.Namespace".
Of course the IMAP namespace extension (http://www.apps.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2342.html) needs a
hierarchy delimiter, but is is not really part of the namespace as far as I understand.
On the other hand as part of NamespaceResponse it models the response - which has a prefix
and a delimiter, I think we should leave it.

> A namespace is merely a string in IMAP - a name. However, in James it is represented
by an interface containing a prefix an a delimiter. The prefix is the name and the delimiter
is the one that as passed around in James everywhere, so it shouldn't be part of the namespace.
For IMAP there is even no need to separate the namespace from the mailbox name. Still - for
convenience - we should put a dot at the end of the namespace names.
