>                 Key: JAMES-1932
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-1932
>             Project: James Server
>          Issue Type: Task
>            Reporter: Matthieu Baechler
>            Priority: Major
>              Labels: backend, frontend, gsoc2017, java, js, json, rest, sse
> James has to concept of mailet pipeline : for any incoming email, the email 
> is passing through the pipeline the is made of matchers and mailets. These 
> components allow to implement business rules based on some xml configuration 
> and some java component.
> That's a great strength of James and a lot of people use it for this 
> capability.
> Nevertheless, editing the pipeline and making tests is painful right now, you 
> are left finding solutions like "edit xml, launch server, send an email, read 
> logs".
> To ease adoption, we would like to make that process easy and fun by :
> * providing a web ui frontend to design the pipeline
> * given a set of emails, make it possible to visualise each email flow into 
> the mailet pipeline to test it
> * define a way to express the expected results to make sure people can save 
> their work into automated tests
> To implement that, the student must know enough about web frontend dev to 
> implement a pipeline designer and debugger.
> She or he will need to know some java to implement server side logic for :
> * make james accept to reconfigure its pipeline at runtime to take 
> modifications into account
> * design a protocol to stream debug data from a pipeline to the web ui and 
> implement it server-side in java
> * implement a junit runner to be able to run some special mailet tests based 
> on the work done in the web designer.
