Class ParameterList

java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.mail.internet.ParameterList

public class ParameterList
extends java.lang.Object

This class holds MIME parameters (attribute-value pairs). The mail.mime.encodeparameters and mail.mime.decodeparameters System properties control whether encoded parameters, as specified by RFC 2231, are supported. By default, such encoded parameters are not supported.

Also, in the current implementation, setting the System property mail.mime.decodeparameters.strict to "true" will cause a ParseException to be thrown for errors detected while decoding encoded parameters. By default, if any decoding errors occur, the original (undecoded) string is used.

The current implementation supports the System property mail.mime.parameters.strict, which if set to false when parsing a parameter list allows parameter values to contain whitespace and other special characters without being quoted; the parameter value ends at the next semicolon. If set to true (the default), parameter values are required to conform to the MIME specification and must be quoted if they contain whitespace or special characters.

Constructor Detail

ParameterList

public ParameterList()
No-arg Constructor.


ParameterList

public ParameterList(java.lang.String s)
              throws ParseException
Constructor that takes a parameter-list string. The String is parsed and the parameters are collected and stored internally. A ParseException is thrown if the parse fails. Note that an empty parameter-list string is valid and will be parsed into an empty ParameterList.

Parameters:
s - the parameter-list string.
Throws:
ParseException - if the parse fails.
Method Detail

size

public int size()
Return the number of parameters in this list.

Returns:
number of parameters.

get

public java.lang.String get(java.lang.String name)
Returns the value of the specified parameter. Note that parameter names are case-insensitive.

Parameters:
name - parameter name.
Returns:
Value of the parameter. Returns null if the parameter is not present.

set

public void set(java.lang.String name,
                java.lang.String value)
Set a parameter. If this parameter already exists, it is replaced by this new value.

Parameters:
name - name of the parameter.
value - value of the parameter.

set

public void set(java.lang.String name,
                java.lang.String value,
                java.lang.String charset)
Set a parameter. If this parameter already exists, it is replaced by this new value. If the mail.mime.encodeparameters System property is true, and the parameter value is non-ASCII, it will be encoded with the specified charset, as specified by RFC 2231.

Parameters:
name - name of the parameter.
value - value of the parameter.
charset - charset of the parameter value.
Since:
JavaMail 1.4

remove

public void remove(java.lang.String name)
Removes the specified parameter from this ParameterList. This method does nothing if the parameter is not present.

Parameters:
name - name of the parameter.

getNames

public java.util.Enumeration getNames()
Return an enumeration of the names of all parameters in this list.

Returns:
Enumeration of all parameter names in this list.

toString

public java.lang.String toString()
Convert this ParameterList into a MIME String. If this is an empty list, an empty string is returned.

Overrides:
toString in class java.lang.Object
Returns:
String

toString

public java.lang.String toString(int used)
Convert this ParameterList into a MIME String. If this is an empty list, an empty string is returned. The 'used' parameter specifies the number of character positions already taken up in the field into which the resulting parameter list is to be inserted. It's used to determine where to fold the resulting parameter list.

Parameters:
used - number of character positions already used, in the field into which the parameter list is to be inserted.
Returns:
String
