Subject [jira] [Resolved] (COMPRESS-194) Unable to create a TAR file that contains an entry which is >8 GB in size.

Stefan Bodewig resolved COMPRESS-194.
-------------------------------------

       Resolution: Not A Problem
    Fix Version/s: 1.4

The docs of Ant's compress Antlib are not exactly Commons Compress' docs ;-)

If you want to create archives with big files you have to explicitly enable it by setting
bigNumberMode to something other than TarArchiveOutputStream.BIGNUMBER_ERROR (which is the
default), i.e. you have to chose between posix and star modes.

In the case of the Compress Antlib it means you have to chose a format that supports big files
in the tar task, i.e. "star", "gnu" or "posix".

> The common-compress-1.4.1 api says it supports unlimited file sizes for tar and untar
operations. [http://ant.apache.org/antlibs/compress/]
> Only Untar operations on a file > 8GB is fixed,
> But creating a tar on a file >8GB is not working.
> When I try to do  " tarOutputStream.putArchiveEntry(archiveEntry); " 
> i get the below exception. 
> java.lang.RuntimeException: entry size '9633985364' is too big ( > 8589934591 )
