Subject [jira] Commented: (COMPRESS-59) ArchiveEntry could have toString methods for formatting header contents
Date Sat, 28 Mar 2009 11:07:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-59?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12693425#action_12693425

Sebb commented on COMPRESS-59:
------------------------------

Rather than add a toString() method to each implementation, would you be happy with a new
AbstractArchiveEntry class that has the generic toString() implementation?

That is, derive the concrete classes by extending AbstractArchiveEntry rather than implementing
ArchiveEntry.

We would then have the string representations getName() and toString() which should be enough
for basic displays and debugging.

> I think it would be useful if the ArchiveEntry interface had some methods for formatting
the entry information as a String.
> This could then be used to create an Archive scanner to list archive contents, for example.
> There should probably be two methods:
> toShortString() - shows name, type and size only.
> toLongString() - shows all the details.
