Subject [jira] [Created] (COMPRESS-164) Cannot Read Winzip Archives With Unicode Extra Fields
Date Mon, 05 Dec 2011 12:31:39 GMT
Cannot Read Winzip Archives With Unicode Extra Fields

                 Key: COMPRESS-164
             Project: Commons Compress
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Archivers
    Affects Versions: 1.3
         Environment: Windows 7, Oracle JDK 6
            Reporter: Volker Leidl

I have a zip file created with WinZip containing Unicode extra fields. Upon attempting to
extract it with, ZipFile.getInputStream()
returns null for ZipArchiveEntries previously retrieved with ZipFile.getEntry() or even ZipFile.getEntries().
See UTF8ZipFilesTest.patch in the attachments for a test case exposing the bug. The original
test case stopped short of trying to read the entries, that's why this wasn't flagged up before.

The problem lies in the fact that inside entries are stored in a HashMap. However,
at one point after populating the HashMap, the unicode extra fields are read, which leads
to a change of the ZipArchiveEntry name, and therefore a change of its hash code. Because
of this, subsequent gets on the HashMap fail to retrieve the original values.

ZipFile.patch contains an (admittedly simple-minded) fix for this problem by reconstructing
the entries HashMap after the Unicode extra fields have been parsed. The purpose of this patch
is mainly to show that the problem is indeed what I think, rather than providing a well-designed

The patches have been tested against revision 1210416.
