Mailing with Velocity

Java Mailing is also leveraged by Spring, in the usual templating way some optimisations have been added. Therefore, we will write a small mailing application here.
We will add Velocity for mail templating.

MailSample:

package sample.mail;

import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.Map;

import javax.mail.internet.MimeMessage;

import org.apache.velocity.app.VelocityEngine;
import org.springframework.context.ApplicationContext;
import org.springframework.context.support.ClassPathXmlApplicationContext;
import org.springframework.mail.javamail.JavaMailSender;
import org.springframework.mail.javamail.MimeMessageHelper;
import org.springframework.mail.javamail.MimeMessagePreparator;
import org.springframework.ui.velocity.VelocityEngineUtils;

public class MailSample {

	private JavaMailSender mailSender;
	private VelocityEngine velocityEngine;

	public void setMailSender(JavaMailSender mailSender) {
		this.mailSender = mailSender;
	}

	public void setVelocityEngine(VelocityEngine velocityEngine) {
		this.velocityEngine = velocityEngine;
	}

	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
		ApplicationContext app = new ClassPathXmlApplicationContext(
				"applicationContext.xml");
		MailSample mailer = (MailSample) app.getBean("mailer");
		mailer.send();
	}

	private void send() {
	      MimeMessagePreparator preparator = new MimeMessagePreparator() {
	          public void prepare(MimeMessage mimeMessage) throws Exception {
	             MimeMessageHelper message = new MimeMessageHelper(mimeMessage);
	             message.setTo("mail.receiver@web.de");
	             message.setFrom("mail.sender@web.de"); // could be parameterized...
	             Map model = new HashMap();
	             model.put("key", "testtext");
	             String text = VelocityEngineUtils.mergeTemplateIntoString(
	                velocityEngine, "test.vm", model);
	             message.setText(text, true);
	          }
	       };
	       this.mailSender.send(preparator);
	}
}
  • the following part is also copied from the Email tutorial.

applicationContext.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<beans xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans"
	xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
	xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/spring-beans-2.0.xsd">

		</property>
<property name="username"><value>username</value></property>
<property name="password"><value>password</value></property>
	</bean>

	<bean id="mailer" class="sample.mail.MailSample">
<property name="mailSender" ref="mailSender" />
<property name="velocityEngine" ref="velocityEngine" />
	</bean>

   <bean id="velocityEngine" class="org.springframework.ui.velocity.VelocityEngineFactoryBean">
<property name="velocityProperties">
         <value>
            resource.loader=class
            class.resource.loader.class=org.apache.velocity.runtime.resource.loader.ClasspathResourceLoader
         </value>
      </property>
   </bean>

</beans>
  • we just need two more files, of course the POM.

POM:

<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/maven-v4_0_0.xsd">
  <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>
  <groupId>velocitymail</groupId>
  <artifactId>velocitymail</artifactId>
  <name>velocitymail</name>
  <version>0.0.1-SNAPSHOT</version>
  <description/>
  <dependencies>
  	<dependency>
  		<groupId>org.springframework</groupId>
  		<artifactId>spring</artifactId>

  • and the velocity template, which is very simple in this case.

test.vm:

hello $key

and finally the project structure:
