Subject [jira] [Commented] (AXIOM-350) Clean up the org.apache.axiom.attachments.Part interface
Date Thu, 31 Mar 2016 14:42:25 GMT


Karel Vervaeke commented on AXIOM-350:

[~veithen] Why was the fix version removed? It seems the javamail dependency has been removed.

obtw: there are some lingering comment references to PartFactory and PartContentFactory in

>             Project: Axiom

> 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).
