Hi, I want to develop a news reader by using Java. It is a server side program which fetch post from various news server, process the content and store them to databse (somehow like a usenet archives)

I am wondering which tools to use between JavaMail and Jakarta Commons NNTP

However I only find ONE NNTP provider for JavaMail and is under GNU ClassPathX project, which I worry the compatiabity with Sun VM

Can someone kindly tell me the difference of the above 2 methods (just beiefly)?

I am start writing on Common NNTP and feel positive about it, except it is still a fundamental api instead of high level

Regards
