Java - com.aspose.network.outlook.MapiMessage - How to get Date?

Hi,

For the java version of com.aspose.network.outlook.MapiMessage - how do we get the date of the email. There does not appear to be a method to do this?

I have tried to use MapiPropertyTags to do this but these also do not appear to work. I have tried to do this with the following:

MapiPropertyCollection coll = msg.getProperties();
MapiProperty prop = coll.get(MapiPropertyTag.PR_CREATION_TIME);
if (prop != null) System.out.println("PR_CREATION_TIME "+prop.GetDate().toString());
prop = coll.get(MapiPropertyTag.PR_CLIENT_SUBMIT_TIME);
if (prop != null) System.out.println("PR_CLIENT_SUBMIT_TIME "+prop.GetDate().toString());
prop = coll.get(MapiPropertyTag.PR_DELIVER_TIME);
if (prop != null) System.out.println("PR_DELIVER_TIME "+prop.GetDate().toString());
prop = coll.get(MapiPropertyTag.PR_MESSAGE_DELIVERY_TIME);
if (prop != null) System.out.println("PR_MESSAGE_DELIVERY_TIME "+prop.GetDate().toString());
prop = coll.get(MapiPropertyTag.PR_ORIGINAL_DELIVERY_TIME);
if (prop != null) System.out.println("PR_ORIGINAL_DELIVERY_TIME "+prop.GetDate().toString());
prop = coll.get(MapiPropertyTag.PR_ORIGINAL_SUBMIT_TIME);
if (prop != null) System.out.println("PR_ORIGINAL_SUBMIT_TIME "+prop.GetDate().toString());
prop = coll.get(MapiPropertyTag.PR_RECEIPT_TIME);
if (prop != null) System.out.println("PR_RECEIPT_TIME "+prop.GetDate().toString());

However, none of these really work - PR_CREATION_TIME, PR_CLIENT_SUBMIT_TIME, PR_MESSAGE_DELIVERY_TIME all come back with a strange date some time in the past. The rest of the properties are all null.

Ultimately we are trying to pull back a consistent date field from the emails. Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks,

James

Anyone help from the support team?

Thanks,

Hello,

We are doing investigation on this issue. I will get back to you ASAP.

Cheers,

Hello,

We have fixed this bug. I will send you the jar later.

Thanks

Hi,



The version that you have sent through appears to be an older version - many of the methods and functions are missing.



I am meant to be merging the altered class files with the latest version of the Aspose JAR that we already have (1.0.0.4)?



This is a bit of a messy way of doing things… the code appears to have branched.



Let us know the best plan of action.



Cheers,

OK - I have tried merging the jar files - it does not work.

Please send through a packaged version of the latest jar with the latest set of fixes for date.

Please make this a priority.

I am also waiting on feedback for the issues with getting the SMTP version of the email addresses (in a separate post).

Thanks,

James

Hi James,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

1. Please confirm the version by checking the “AssemblyInformationalVersion” field of the MANIFEST.MF within the jar rather than the file name. The fixed version should be “2009.02.05”.

2. I’d make a test using the following code:

public static void main(String[] args) {

String path = "c:\\test.msg";

MapiMessageReader reader = new MapiMessageReader(path);

com.aspose.network.outlook.MapiMessage msg = reader.ReadMessage();

System.out.println("MSG. ClientSubmitTime:" + msg.ClientSubmitTime());

MapiPropertyCollection coll = msg.getProperties();

MapiProperty prop = coll.get(MapiPropertyTag.PR_CREATION_TIME);

if (prop != null) System.out.println("PR_CREATION_TIME "+prop.GetDate().toString());

prop = coll.get(MapiPropertyTag.PR_CLIENT_SUBMIT_TIME);

if (prop != null) System.out.println("PR_CLIENT_SUBMIT_TIME "+prop.GetDate().toString());

prop = coll.get(MapiPropertyTag.PR_DELIVER_TIME);

if (prop != null) System.out.println("PR_DELIVER_TIME "+prop.GetDate().toString());

prop = coll.get(MapiPropertyTag.PR_MESSAGE_DELIVERY_TIME);

if (prop != null) System.out.println("PR_MESSAGE_DELIVERY_TIME "+prop.GetDate().toString());

prop = coll.get(MapiPropertyTag.PR_ORIGINAL_DELIVERY_TIME);

if (prop != null) System.out.println("PR_ORIGINAL_DELIVERY_TIME "+prop.GetDate().toString());

prop = coll.get(MapiPropertyTag.PR_ORIGINAL_SUBMIT_TIME);

if (prop != null) System.out.println("PR_ORIGINAL_SUBMIT_TIME "+prop.GetDate().toString());

prop = coll.get(MapiPropertyTag.PR_RECEIPT_TIME);

if (prop != null) System.out.println("PR_RECEIPT_TIME "+prop.GetDate().toString());

}

And the output is correct:

MSG.Get:Wed Feb 04 03:30:43 GMT+08:00 2009
PR_CREATION_TIME Tue Feb 10 06:42:53 GMT+08:00 2009
PR_CLIENT_SUBMIT_TIME Wed Feb 04 03:30:43 GMT+08:00 2009
PR_MESSAGE_DELIVERY_TIME Wed Feb 04 03:30:55 GMT+08:00 2009
I'd attached my test file(test.msg) here for reference. Could you please send your msg file to me for testing?

3. Since it's not a production version, the API may be changed in final release, but we will try our best to make it compatible. Please tell me what classes/functions are missing and our developers will check again.

Thanks

Hi Dean,

The file that you sent me does not contain a jar file.

However, the MANIFEST.MF does contain the correct assembly date.

If I package the code up into a JAR file - it does not contain all the methods - and appears therefore to be an old version.

Please can you send me a correctly packaged version with the latest fix.

Thanks,

James

Hello,

Any update on this? Been a couple of days…

Cheers,

James

I will send you a new version with the update of getEmailAddress tomorrow.

Thanks
