public abstract class IncomingAttachmentStreams
- extends Object
Similiar in concept to an iterator over the delimited streams inside
of the HTTP stream. One difference between this class and a full fledge
iterator is that the class is unable to tell if there are more streams until
the last one has been fully read. It will however, return null when the end
of the HTTP stream has been reached. Since the HTTP stream can contain data
in different formats (e.g. DIME or SwA), the IncomingAttachmentStreams class
will be an abstract class letting its derivatives handle the specifics to
parsing out the HTTP stream. However, the class will implement methods that
keep track of when each of the delimited streams are completely read. This is
necessary since the next stream cannot be created until the previous stream
has been fully read due to the fact that we are actually dealing with a
single stream delimited by markers.
