Subject [COMPRESS] Add getArchiveType() method to [Archive|Compressor]InputStream classes?
Date Tue, 11 May 2010 15:55:14 GMT
Seems to me that it would be useful to be able to find out what
ArchiveInputStream has been chosen by the ArchiveStreamFactory.

I'm thinking of adding something like:

public String getArchiveType() {
   return ArchiveStreamFactory.TAR ; // or ZIP etc.
}

to each of the AIS subclasses.

The AIS parent class could either have a dummy implementation, or the
parent method could be abstract to force subclasses to provide the
method.

The same could be done for CompressorStreamFactory.

Thoughts?
