> Assume from a struts-tomcate web-app I get a large file that I want to store in
> a DB. To save DB permanent storage, I want to compress this. To be portable, I
> rather want to do that in java than on the DB-side with some proprietary commands.
> In order not to have to load into the RAM at least the entire compressed output
> by e.g. creating a ByteArrayOutputStream with for example
> java.util.zip.GZIPOutputStream or java.util.zip.DeflaterOutputStream and then
> converting it back to an InputStream for the PreparedStatement
> stmt.setBinaryStream(int pos,
> InputStream stream, int length), I envision an InputStream converter that is
> memory efficient.
> I started implementing it myself and got it working at least for
> single-byte reads. But it is far from production-readiness - perhaps I should
> rather extend java.io.PipedInputStream than trying to do my own efficient
> buffer management and do all the synchronize() blocking etc. 
> ==> shouldn't something go into org.apache.commons.compress.zip?
> There are certainly other applications for such a class.
> P.S.: Alternatively, there is a "OutputStream java.sql.Blob.setBinaryStream(long
> pos)" but for example in MySQL that "updatable BLOB that can update in-place" is
> not yet implemented. Doing proprietary SQL-"COMPRESS" as per
> http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/string-functions.html is probably an even less
> preferrable option.
