Subject [jira] Commented: (CAMEL-1320) Create GZip Data Format
Date Fri, 13 Feb 2009 10:50:59 GMT


Roman Kalukiewicz commented on CAMEL-1320:

It is very similar to zip data format - it even uses the same deflate algorithm. The point
is, that zip data format uses deflate algorithm directly, while gzip would use gzip file format,
that is (I believe more popular).

The problem with zip data format is that is is not a zip really - zip is a format that compresses
set of files, while our zip data format doesn't - it just compresses data using compression
algorithm of zip.
On the other hand gzip is a format that compresses data (not files), uses the same algorithm,
but has its own headers, that has to be interpreted.

I even believe that our zip data format should be renamed to 'deflate' data format as it is
the name that describes what it really is.
