Have any of you used Commons email ?
Im trying to send emails from my J2EE application, I was coding it all by hand now I was reading the forum, checked Jakarta commons web page and saw this email component. Is it useful ?

It looks like it is in a pre-release stage, so I would be wary of using it in a production application. Quoted fromthe home page,
Methods and classes can and will appear and disappear without warning

You may be okay with that if you're going to be the sole maintainer of the application. :roll:

Thanks, I hadnt notice that.
My tests are all working on my personal computing using my ISP smtp server, they just dont work ( yet ) when I try to use my code in my corporate application, since Outlook ' authentication is different, will just have to look further into that...

When you are using the SandBox component of commons project. You must be very careful in testing. Actually we have used some sandbox component in our production release. The fact is that
1. we need that component urgently
2. we dont have enough time to write our own component.
Keep an eye on the sandbox component you are using, changed quickly as they improved.

Commons Email is not discussed in the book. I haven't had a look at that particular comp so not sure how it differs from JavaMail.

From the examples it looks like a simplified, stripped down API compared to JavaMail, providing no additional functionality but being easier to use for newcomers and simple applications.
