Subject [jira] Commented: (COMPRESS-54) Add 7zip or RAR archive support
Date Wed, 15 Apr 2009 10:34:14 GMT


Sebb commented on COMPRESS-54:

We need to check first whether public domain is OK to use in an ASF project.

I think there have been some questions as to whether this is allowed; AFAIK it's not covered
in the existing rules.

Also, the Wikipedia page says that the LZMA compression is similar to deflate, so maybe that
will help understand the code.

> Has anyone looked into adding support for 7zip and RAR file types? Using the j7zip and
junrar libraries I was able to get a rough protoype working with commons-compress but only
with extract support for RAR (due to licencing issues). Also, my prototype performance is
poor so I definately need to improve it.
