Hi!

I've seen that J2EE contains email specification( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J2ee ), but I've searched and I didn't find a standardized method to send email. After some search I've found some complicate class  programmed by hand.

So how can we simply send an email with from/to/subject/content informations?

Can you give me a sample code?

Thanks you!

@Tuno85, objects
And if the server need an authentification? what are the parameters name for this?

@CEHJ I think the improvement to not do a Session.put, ... isn't enough to justify to add a custom library

Something like this will do the trick.
Transport transport = session.getTransport("smtp");
transport.connect(host, username, password);
transport.sendMessage(message, message.getAllRecipients());
transport.close();

Open in new window

I don't understand i'm afraid. There is no custom library involved - just JavaMail

@CEHJ: My fault sorry, it's ok
@Tuno85: Do I still need  this:

        sessionProperties.put("mail.smtp.host", SMTP_SERVER);
        Session session = Session.getDefaultInstance(sessionProperties, null);

because the host is already given in the "Transport" now?

Yes but you could leave it out at Transport
Transport transport = session.getTransport();

Ok, but we specify it two times:


            sessionProperties.put("mail.smtp.host", SMTP_SERVER);
and
            transport.connect(SMTP_SERVER, SMTP_USER, SMTP_PWD);

Why we need to specify twice the server, I'm curious

Use an Authenticator

        Authenticator auth = new SMTPAuthenticator();
        Session mailSession = Session.getDefaultInstance(sessionProperties, auth);

Where the authentication looks like

    class SMTPAuthenticator extends Authenticator {
        public PasswordAuthentication getPasswordAuthentication() {
           return new PasswordAuthentication("smtpuser", "smtppassword");
        }
    }

Nargzul, you don't need an Authenticator: the code Tuno85 posted will do the authentication

Didn't copy your answer, was just responding to question asked about the code I had already posted.
