Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMPRESS-54) Add 7zip or RAR archive support
Date Fri, 14 Sep 2012 15:02:07 GMT


Adam Kunicki commented on COMPRESS-54:
-------------------------------------- Seems to have an Apache licensed version of the LZMA compression
(and streams) based on the original 7z SDK. Could incorporate that into commons-compress and
then just need to write a compatible archiver.

> Has anyone looked into adding support for 7zip and RAR file types? Using the j7zip and
junrar libraries I was able to get a rough protoype working with commons-compress but only
with extract support for RAR (due to licencing issues). Also, my prototype performance is
poor so I definately need to improve it.
