Chapter-19 of the book discusses JavaMail API as the second edition. Are they identical or you made some updates into the explanation of the topics? I heard that there are some slight changes in JavaMail API coming with J2EE 1.4. Was your chapter updated accordingly? I just would like to know whether the contents in that chapter are the same as those in the second edition...

Thanks...

It's not word for word identical, but that chapter really didn't change very much, mostly because JavaMail didn't change very much. The only noticeable change since the second edition is that Sun's implementation now supports POP as well as IMAP. However, the service provider design of the API means that POP could always be supported with 3rd party libraries. What few changes there are, are mostly in the implementation. The actual programming interfaces have changed very little since JavaMail 1.1.3, the version covered in the second edition.

Thanks for the reply, Mr.Elliotte... Yes, you are right that there are only slight changes since JavaMail 1.1.3. So I can now see that you made a little bit chanegs in the chapter.

I'm just wondering if the chapter is word by word identical. It's great to hear that at least the chapter was reviewed again and written again...

Thanks...
