Has any research been done into using Java Mail with the upcoming compact profiles as described in JEP-161? (http://openjdk.java.net/jeps/161)
JavaMail relies on the javax.activation packages. It appears this package will only be available in the full profile, which would prevent using Java Mail on devices which can only support the compact profiles.
I would like to be able to use Java Mail in embedded device that uses compact2 or compact3 profiles (much smaller footprint than JavaSE).
Based on a quick look at the source, removing usage of the activation packages would not be trivial. Any suggestions or alternative mail packages?
