Subject RE: "java.io.IOException: Negative seek offset" while expanding .tar file
Date Sun, 22 Jan 2006 23:30:40 GMT
I don't see TARdistributionDir being set to a value anywhere in the code you
provided. Is it set properly prior to the unTar target being run?

Subject: "java.io.IOException: Negative seek offset" while expanding .tar
file

I am getting an error when I use the unzip task to expand a tar file created
using the tar task.

Below is a sample of the code I am executing as well as the error I am
recieving.

Can anyone help with this?

listing of build.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> <project name="TarTest"
default="unTar" basedir=".">  <property name="tardir" value="${basedir}/tar"
/>  <property name="buildTemp" value="${basedir}/buildTemp" />  <property
name="TestFilesDir" value="${buildTemp}/TestFilesDir" />  <property
name="expandedFilesDir" value="${basedir}/expandedFiles" />

 <!-- expand the tar file -->
 <target name ="unTar"  depends="makeTar" >
  <unzip src="${tardir}/test.tar" dest="${TARdistributionDir}" />  </target>

 <!-- create the tar file -->
 <target name ="makeTar" depends="buildTestFiles" >
  <mkdir dir="${tardir}"/>
  <tar destfile="${tardir}/test.tar" basedir="${buildTemp}" />  </target>

 <!-- create some files -->
 <target name="buildTestFiles" depends="prepareDirs" >
  <concat destfile="${TestFilesDir}/file1.txt">This is file1</concat>
  <concat destfile="${TestFilesDir}/file2.txt">This is file2</concat>
  <concat destfile="${TestFilesDir}/file3.txt">This is file3</concat>
</target>

 <!-- create reqrd dirs -->
 <target name="prepareDirs" >
  <mkdir dir="${tardir}"/>
  <mkdir dir="${buildTemp}"/>
  <mkdir dir="${TestFilesDir}"/>
  <mkdir dir="${expandedFilesDir}"/>
 </target>
</project>

Result of  "ant -verbose" using the above build file:
