Subject [jira] Commented: (VFS-91) Provide random access to gzip files.
Date Tue, 17 Oct 2006 13:03:36 GMT

Mario Ivankovits commented on VFS-91:


There are a couple of issues:

1) Its not possible to embedd the org.ecc package, all has to be prefixed with org.apache.commons.vfs
2) All files have to have the Apache License plate you'll find in all the other files.
3) For what I can see you used your own gzip implementation, I didnt thought in very detail
about it, but I think this is not necessary
4) It seems there are classes within the org.ecc package you didn't need to fulfil the proposed
function e.g. RandomAccessFileExclusiveInputStream
5) You changed VFS classes, but the patch is not in "svn diff" format - its hard for me to
figure out whats changed that way.

In the end it looks like you simply skip bytes ahead by read them byte by byte or backward
by resetting to a marker.
Shouldn't this possible to do with the classes already available within VFS?

> For an application to have transparent access to the uncompressed contents of a gzip
file, VFS should provide random access to it as well.
