Stefan,

Thank You for your timely response.

I ported the tar archive to linux box and did untarring. It looks all good with no loss of
data. Have used STAR .
However, winrar in windows does not support extracting tar file of >8GB . Had to extract
using 7-zip  to extract successfully to view the contents.

> 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 )
