Subject [jira] Created: (AXIOM-350) Clean up the org.apache.axiom.attachments.Part interface
Date Sun, 14 Nov 2010 10:39:13 GMT
Clean up the org.apache.axiom.attachments.Part interface

                 Key: AXIOM-350
             Project: Axiom
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: API
            Reporter: Andreas Veithen
            Assignee: Andreas Veithen
             Fix For: 1.2.11

Currently, the Part interface is only used internally by Axiom. This can be seen from the
current Javadoc [1] (note that Part is used by PartFactory, which is also only used internally
[2]). Therefore the Part interface is not really part of the public API and modifying it would
only impact code that uses Part and PartFactory independently from the rest of the Axiom API,
which is a highly unlikely case.

In order to solve AXIOM-31 and AXIOM-280, it is proposed to expose the Part instances via
the Attachments object. This is also necessary to make the SAAJ implementation in Axis2 complete,
because SAAJ defines methods to access the headers of a MIME part, and this is not possible
with the current Axiom API.

Exposing the Part instances via the Attachments object will make the Part interface part of
the public API. Before doing this, we should clean up this interface a bit. In particular,
we should eliminate its dependency on the JavaMail API (usage of javax.mail.MessagingException
by all methods and usage of javax.mail.Header as a return value of getAllHeaders).
