Subject [jira] [Commented] (IMAP-370) Consider supporting the upcoming MOVE extension
Date Fri, 07 Dec 2012 10:39:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IMAP-370?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13526297#comment-13526297

Eric Charles commented on IMAP-370:
-----------------------------------

I looked at your first shot, and it looks good aside the points you mention.
Yes, we the ideal would be to lock the source folder, but as we don't either lock for COPY,
it could be committed as such.
I would be good to have the implementation for at least maildir, and jpa.
I don't think the legacy MOVE should be supported, but if you do it, why not
Thx, Eric

> As we see at http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-imapmove-command/ballot/ IETF
is about to finally accept the IMAP MOVE extension.
> This extension enables great performance optimization possibilities for the more advanced
Mailstore backends, eg the ones that use a underlying relational or non-relational database:

> One of the most common usage scenarios in IMAP is moving messages across folders, and
with the MOVE extention it can be finally accomplished without a COPY/DELETE cycle on certain
Mailbox backends.
> Therefore, in my belief, it would be very nice to have that extension implemented in
James.
> Some of the bundled Mailstore implementations already are based on SQL/noSQL datasources,
and can directly benefit from it.
> Some of the independent Mailstore implementations (including mine) can benefit from it
too.
> Some of IMAP clients (including Thunderbird as of 3.something) already support that extension
or the X-MOVE or X-AOL-MOVE one.
> So James has a great opportunity to be the leader of standards adoption on the server
side.
> What do you think? Please comment.
