public class MimeHeaders
extends Object

A container for MimeHeader objects, which represent the MIME headers present in a MIME part of a message.

SOAPMessage.getAttachments(), AttachmentPart

Constructor Detail

MimeHeaders

public MimeHeaders()
Constructs a default MimeHeaders object initialized with an empty Vector object.

Method Detail

getHeader

public String[] getHeader(String name)
Returns all of the values for the specified header as an array of String objects.

Parameters:
name - the name of the header for which values will be returned
Returns:
a String array with all of the values for the specified header
See Also:
setHeader(java.lang.String, java.lang.String)

setHeader

public void setHeader(String name,
                      String value)
Replaces the current value of the first header entry whose name matches the given name with the given value, adding a new header if no existing header name matches. This method also removes all matching headers after the first one.

Note that RFC822 headers can contain only US-ASCII characters.

Parameters:
name - a String with the name of the header for which to search
value - a String with the value that will replace the current value of the specified header
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if there was a problem in the mime header name or the value being set
See Also:
getHeader(java.lang.String)

addHeader

public void addHeader(String name,
                      String value)
Adds a MimeHeader object with the specified name and value to this MimeHeaders object's list of headers.

Note that RFC822 headers can contain only US-ASCII characters.

Parameters:
name - a String with the name of the header to be added
value - a String with the value of the header to be added
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if there was a problem in the mime header name or value being added

removeHeader

public void removeHeader(String name)
Remove all MimeHeader objects whose name matches the given name.

Parameters:
name - a String with the name of the header for which to search

removeAllHeaders

public void removeAllHeaders()
Removes all the header entries from this MimeHeaders object.


getAllHeaders

public Iterator getAllHeaders()
Returns all the MimeHeaders in this MimeHeaders object.

Returns:
an Iterator object over this MimeHeaders object's list of MimeHeader objects

getMatchingHeaders

public Iterator getMatchingHeaders(String[] names)
Returns all the MimeHeader objects whose name matches a name in the given array of names.

Parameters:
names - an array of String objects with the names for which to search
Returns:
an Iterator object over the MimeHeader objects whose name matches one of the names in the given list

getNonMatchingHeaders

public Iterator getNonMatchingHeaders(String[] names)
Returns all of the MimeHeader objects whose name does not match a name in the given array of names.

Parameters:
names - an array of String objects with the names for which to search
