java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.mail.Address
All Implemented Interfaces:
java.io.Serializable
Direct Known Subclasses:
InternetAddress, NewsAddress

public abstract class Address
extends java.lang.Object
implements java.io.Serializable

This abstract class models the addresses in a message. Subclasses provide specific implementations. Subclasses will typically be serializable so that (for example) the use of Address objects in search terms can be serialized along with the search terms.

public Address()
Method Detail

getType

public abstract java.lang.String getType()
Return a type string that identifies this address type.

Returns:
address type
See Also:
InternetAddress

toString

public abstract java.lang.String toString()
Return a String representation of this address object.

Overrides:
toString in class java.lang.Object
Returns:
string representation of this address

equals

public abstract boolean equals(java.lang.Object address)
The equality operator. Subclasses should provide an implementation of this method that supports value equality (do the two Address objects represent the same destination?), not object reference equality. A subclass must also provide a corresponding implementation of the hashCode method that preserves the general contract of equals and hashCode - objects that compare as equal must have the same hashCode.

Overrides:
equals in class java.lang.Object
Parameters:
address - Address object
