Subject [jira] Commented: (IO-84) Many classes are limited to length of stream < 2 GB, and behave incorrectly on larger streams
Date Wed, 11 Oct 2006 14:49:20 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IO-84?page=comments#action_12441471 ] 
            
Stephen Colebourne commented on IO-84:
--------------------------------------

I've changed these from deprecated to throw an exception instead (although I'm open to -1/MIN_VALUE/MAX_VALUE
too)

The reason is that most users will probably only care about smaller files, and inconveniencing
the many for the few is too harsh a response to this problem.The javadoc together with an
exception would seem to be a safe way to deal with the problem.

This call is now awaiting feedback or closure.

> java int.MAX_VALUE is 2 GB. Classes that handle streams larger than 2 GB will behave
incorrectly.
> For example, see 
> http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/jakarta/commons/proper/io/trunk/src/java/org/apache/commons/io/IOUtils.java?view=markup
> Method: int copy(InputStream input, OutputStream output).
> The correct method would be: long copy(InputStream input, OutputStream output).
> This issue may affect many classes and routines.
