    Seam mail does MIME message correct, but doens't send subject

    Bob Thule Newbie

      When running on Tomcat, with Seam 2.2.0.GA, RichFaces 2.3.x, and JSF/Facelets, the debug shows that email doesn't include the headers such as Message-ID, Subject, Content-Type and so on.  But it does include the mime data parts and sends properly through smtp.


      I've tried a couple versions of Java Mail, Activation, Richfaces, and Seam, but I am unable to get it to include the headers.  So when I receive the email, it won't have subject and the body will contain all the mime envelope data.


      Now, what's interesting is that when I run this from a unit test, the headers and mime envelope parts render okay, but the content data inside the envelopes is stripped of html for the main message and attachments are left blank.    In this case, the subject will appear, and I will see an email with the body but the html is stripped and the attachment will show, but will be blank.


      My mail message is a super simple hard coded test.  I've been trying to solve this for many many hours now, so defeated I am putting a request out for help.  Hopefully Pete or someone else is reading this and knows what I am doing wrong!  Pete? Anybody?

          Maybe you need to post some code, so that someone can see what you are doing wrong.


          What do you mean by 'the debug'? Did you turn Java mail debugging on?
          You could set breakpoints in UIMessage.encodeEnd to see how your message
          looks like before being sent.

            I am not sure what all you feel is relevant and needed.  The code to call the render is simply:


            Renderer.render('/email.xhtml');
            



            well, in the unit test it is called in a block like this:


                 new FacesRequest() {
                          @Override
                          protected void invokeApplication() throws Exception {
                              Renderer.instance().render("/WEB-INF/email/Test.xhtml");
                          }
                       }.run();
            



            The email.xhtml is


            <m:message
                 xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"

            </m:message>
            



            I turn debugging on in the mailSession setup in components.xhtml:


            <mail:mail-session installed="true" host="host.com" port="25" tls="false" debug="true"/>

              Bob Thule Newbie

              sorry


              the  code to call the render is simply:


              Renderer.instance().render('/email.xhtml');
              



              The unit test is called in a block like this:


                   new FacesRequest() {
                            @Override
                            protected void invokeApplication() throws Exception {
                                Renderer.instance().render("/email.xhtml");
                            }
                         }.run();

                Bob Thule Newbie

                I figured out the fix for the website:
                Both Sun's JavaMail/Activation and Geronimo's JavaMail/Activation were on the classpath.  The Geronimo was an older version brought in by Maven2 to satisfy Axiom dependencies.  I removed the Sun libraries and specified to use the newer Geronimo libraries.


                But, I still don't have the unit test working.  I am not sure where to begin trying to solve this.  I am copying all the web-app related folders to a webapp directory and adding that to the classpath.  Facelets looks like it is showing the same TagLibraryConfig loadImplicit INFO lines in the unit test as it is in the web.


                How do I go about figuring out why the tags inside


                <m:attachment fileName="tiny.pdf">
                



                and


                <m:body>
                


                are being ignored?

                  Nikolay Elenkov Master

                  How are you verifying your test is successful? By looking at actual message you receive?
                  Seam provides a MockTransport, so you can test if your message is correctly constructed,
                  without actually sending it. It is in the docs, but basically:


                  MimeMessage renderedMessage = getRenderedMailMessage("/mail.xhtml");
                  assert renderedMessage.getAllRecipients().length == 1;
                  InternetAddress to = (InternetAddress) renderedMessage.getAllRecipients()[0];
                  assert to.getAddress().equals("test@foo.com");
                  



                  What this does is save the message in application scope instead of sending it,
                  and returns is as is. You can than check for headers, subject, content, etc.

                      Hi Nikolay,


                      Sorry for the long delay in answering.  Right, the code block you sent is closer to my end goal. although the way I am finding the problem is by viewing the debug output when the mail-session debug is true (and by receiving the badly formatted email).  The code and output I listed above shows that when the email is creating from running from the website, that the MimeMessage is rendered correctly-- but when it is run through the unit tests, that MimeMessage drops all the tags within the m:attachment and m:body tags.
