Request is to receive e-mail ( via Lotus notes database), I get a handle to it in java application, and get the value from the BODY field. The Vector vecBody = ndoc.getItemValue("Body"); line returns a vector with the entire value of the email in the first element of the vector ( note the e-mail has multiple lines - it is actually text that represents a PO).

Now, I simply want to write one line at a time to a relational database table. Yes, this sounds strange, but one record will be the first line of PO e-mail, another record will be second line of PO e-mail, etc. Hey, I didn't design it, just trying to do it.

I am new to java... I have the below code that gets me all the way to having the text of e-mail in vector, but from there I don't know exactly what to do. Java experts told me to use BufferedReader... but it looks like they only take in actual file names. I don't have file, I have a vector full of text with carriage returns in it.

Any idea how I should do this? Any comments appreciated. Thank you.

public class EmailParser extends AgentBase{

* Developer: Jamie Haynes
* Date:9/29/2005
* Purpose:This Java program will be called by an rpg program.
* Java program will get a handle to specific, unprocessed
* e-mails in the target notes db using the 'EMailsNewView' view.
* Program shall loop through all documents.
* If a document does not have the text �Shipping Information:� within the
* first four lines of �Body� field, then Program shall create text field
* named �Processed� and set it to �YES� and save the document and loop to next
* document in collection.
* Program shall parse through �Body� field of each e-mail containing the
* text �Shipping Information:� within the first four lines and
*1.write one record only containing the document�s �From� field while trimming
*all �<� and �>� and blank spaces from beginning and end of string to PO821F
*2.write one record for every line in document�s �Body� field to PO821F while
*trimming all spaces from beginning and end of line.
*Program shall call RPG program ( PO821R ).
*On successful return of RPG program, program shall make the e-mail as processed by
*creating a text field named �Processed� and setting its value to �YES�.
*On unsuccessful return of RPG program, program shall simply loop to next available
*e-mail in collection.
*Program shall continue looping through all documents until end of collection while
*logging update and error information for each e-mail to emailparserlog.text.

So what exactly does the vector contain? Does it contain only one element, a String, which contains the entire PO?

You can use to read from a String, and you can wrap the StringReader with a BufferedReader to read it line by line.
