Subject [jira] Commented: (SANDBOX-183) Compress should allow for writing to Zip Files
Date Thu, 04 Jan 2007 12:03:27 GMT


Christian Grobmeier commented on SANDBOX-183:

it seems difficult to integrate this in the existing codebase. It looks like we would have
to throw away the old zip implementation and use this one, if we want this feature. Please
help if i am wrong.

For the memory problem: wouldn't it be easier just to expand the zipfile in an temp directory,
take the intrnal catalog to see what files we need again and rebuild the whole stuff? I think
this is the way winzip handles this. This would be quite safe and the old file would't get
corrupt in case of any trouble. This strategy would also allow us to delete from the zip package.
