Subject [jira] Commented: (COMPRESS-93) Support for alternative ZIP compression methods
Date Fri, 05 Mar 2010 16:08:27 GMT


Torsten Curdt commented on COMPRESS-93:

Sorry for not being clear. I just wanted to point out - there is no need to wait for Compress.
Change the ZIP implementation by moving it into your namespace and add the zip compressor
method variation to the code. Then send a patch and wait :)

IMO adding a plugging API for just the ZIP compressor methods is a little too much over-engineering.
Questions to ask: How many users will potentially have their own zip compression method ...and
why would they?

> As reported in TIKA-346, a ZIP file that uses a compression method other than STORED
(0) or DEFLATED (8) will cause an IllegalArgumentException ("invalid compression method")
to be thrown.
> It would be great if commons-compress supported alternative compression methods or at
least degraded more gracefully when encountering them.
