Mailet Plan


Andy said:

Ideally, by ~January 1, I'd like to see a draft proposal of the

Mailet interfaces
Injection configuration
"core" apis (like or whatever)

With a "startup" class similar to:
public static void main(String args[]) {
   String mailetconfig = args[0];  //a cheesy prop or xml file to config this
   String mailstream = arg[1];     // a sample input stream to process
   Mailet2Draft m2d = m2d.readConfig(mailetconfig);
   BufferedInputStream bis = new BufferedInputStream(new FileInputStream(mailstream));

Which can be built simply (like by a build.xml or w/o any JAMES stuff.

And a wiki page with a draft specification describing the contracts.
I am willing to contribute to the effort.

Ta. Perhaps we should start a wiki page to outline a timeline and tasks...?
