Subject [jira] [Created] (COMPRESS-194) Unable to create a TAR file that contains an entry which is >8 GB in size.
Date Fri, 06 Jul 2012 08:49:36 GMT
jessy created COMPRESS-194:

             Summary: Unable to create a TAR file that contains an entry which is >8 GB
in size. 
                 Key: COMPRESS-194
             Project: Commons Compress
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Archivers
    Affects Versions: 1.4.1
         Environment: I am using win xp and Red HatLinux 5.1v, but this should be platform
            Reporter: jessy
            Priority: Critical

The common-compress-1.4.1 api says it supports unlimited file sizes for tar and untar operations.

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 )
	at org.apache.commons.compress.archivers.tar.TarArchiveOutputStream.failForBigNumber(
	at org.apache.commons.compress.archivers.tar.TarArchiveOutputStream.failForBigNumbers(
	at org.apache.commons.compress.archivers.tar.TarArchiveOutputStream.putArchiveEntry(

Looking for a fix ..
