Subject [jira] Commented: (SANDBOX-280) unable to extract a TAR file that contains an entry which is 10 GB in size
Date Tue, 10 Feb 2009 16:31:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SANDBOX-280?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12672306#action_12672306

Stefan Bodewig commented on SANDBOX-280:
----------------------------------------

what does a native tar command think of the archive?

I.e. what does "tar tf your-archive.tar" say?

> I made a TAR file which contains a file entry where the file is 10 GB in size.
> When I attempt to extract the file using TarInputStream, it fails with the following
stack trace:
> 	java.io.IOException: unexpected EOF with 24064 bytes unread
> 		at org.apache.commons.compress.archivers.tar.TarInputStream.read(TarInputStream.java:348)
> 		at org.apache.commons.compress.archivers.tar.TarInputStream.copyEntryContents(TarInputStream.java:388)
> So, TarInputStream does not seem to support large (> 8 GB?) files.
> Here is something else to note: I created that TAR file using TarOutputStream , which
did not complain when asked to write a 10 GB file into the TAR file, so I assume that TarOutputStream
has no file size limits?  That, or does it silently create corrupted TAR files (which would
be the worst situation of all...)?
