Subject [jira] Commented: (IMAP-221) Methods which return uid values should use int as return type
Date Mon, 04 Oct 2010 12:41:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IMAP-221?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12917578#action_12917578

Fran├žois-Denis Gonthier commented on IMAP-221:

I thought about filing a bug for this, but did not want to sound ridiculus. For the sanity
of store authors, I think the range of the UID should at least be validated to be in the acceptable
(unsigned int) range. If you raise impossible UIDs, the server accepts them but the client
will fail to parse it and that will possibly hang or make the client reconnect.

> Currently we use long/Long as return type when a message uid is retrieved. Thats wrong
as the RFC only allow 32-Bit numbers. We should change the methods to make this clear.
