java template emailer
I'm trying to create a marketing campaign emailer for a client that
will let me send out a template JSP file that i will populate with data
from a data source.
For example, I have a TreeSet of data where each index holds personal
information about a user (name, email address, city, etc.)
I want to send out an HTML/JSP email as follows:
Thank you for purchasing <%=PRODUCT%>.
Please let us know if you are satisfied with the product:
<HERE IS A DROPDOWNLIST>
Now the problem i'm having is ...I know how to display this information
for each person in the TreeSet (using a forward or include), but
how do i send the completed jsp/html email to that person?
I know that I can do the following:
URL thePage = new URL("http://www.yoursite.com/yourjsp.jsp");
URLConnection conn = thePage.openConnection();
InputStream is = conn.getInputStream();
// read from this InputStream
Then you can direct the data from that InputStream into the e-mail body.
But i'm pretty sure this will send out the jsp without having first
I need to figure out a way to either compile the jsp and then send it,
or compile it to some sort of .html file and send it.
I also need to find the most efficient way of doing this since the
client could be sending large campaigns of emails.
Thanks for your time!
