Subject [jira] Resolved: (IMAP-221) Methods which return uid values should use int as return type
Date Mon, 04 Oct 2010 08:47:34 GMT

Norman Maurer resolved IMAP-221.

      Assignee: Norman Maurer
    Resolution: Invalid

I missed the important word "unsigned". In java all types are signed so we need to use a long.
So everything is fine .. stupid me.

Here is the important phrase which is used in the rfc:

nz-number       = digit-nz *DIGIT
                    ; Non-zero unsigned 32-bit integer
                    ; (0 < n < 4,294,967,296)

> 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.
