*Comments, Questions and Issues
jSieve is a sub-project of Apache James. Please direct your comments and questions to
the relevant James list.
To report issues, such as bugs, go to
As jSieve comes with a fairly extensive suite of jUnit Tests, it would be most
helpful for bug reports to be accompanied by an illustrative jUnit test case.
*Licensing and legal issues
For legal and licensing issues, please look in the legal section of
the documentation or read the LICENSE and NOTICE files.
Version 0.3
This release is the first to include mailet and utility modules, in addition to the core parsing
library. The configuration API has changed significantly to replace magic singletons with POJOs
suitable for IoC. The default configuration mechanism has been retained so though calls have
changed, existing configurations should still be compatible.
Utilities include node serializers to xml and sieve script. The mailet module provides Sieve
in the James 3 codebase.
