im extracting the attachments using the following code,


List Attachments = result.getAttachments();

//Create an Iterator object and iterate through

//the List object

System.out.println("before check of attachments");

Iterator iter = Attachments.iterator();

int i = 0 ;

while (iter.hasNext()) {

//String fileName=Attachments.listIterator(0).toString();


Document file = (Document);

file.copyToFile(new File("D:\\temp\\attachments"+i+""));
