James Admin Web App

I posted an announcement about the James Admin Web App to the James developer list:

I started a project on GitHub that is a web project that people can use to perform some administrative tasks on a James mail server.

The URL is http://github.com/emacadie/James-Admin-Web-App

It works with the James 2.3 schema. It does not work with James servers that store messages and user info on the filesystem. There have been some requests/complaints for an easier way to perform some admin tasks in James. I found a link to something on sourceforge on the James wiki, but that project was abandoned.

It is still a bit rough, but right now, you can add, delete and list the users, as well as get a count of messages in the deadletter table, delete the messages in the deadletter table and get a count of the messages for each account in the inbox.

I use Hibernate and MySQL. I assume it would work with other databases, but I have not tried to set up another database with my James server.

I am starting to look into the code for James 3. Perhaps James 3 makes this obsolete. Right now the documentation is pretty sparse. Anyway, try it out and let me know what you think.
