Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMPRESS-189) ZipArchiveInputStream may read 0 bytes when reading from a nested Zip file
Date Mon, 01 Oct 2012 18:31:07 GMT


Daniel Lowe commented on COMPRESS-189:

This issue can be worked around by reading while 0 or more bytes are read. Unfortunately Java's
built in InputStreamReader will throw an exception is 0 bytes are read which is the underlying
reason why in the example above Commons-IO throws an exception.

Marking and resetting seems to be a reasonable way to workaround the problem:
BufferedInputStream archiveBis = new BufferedInputStream(archiveInput);
archiveBis.mark(1);;//if the bug is encountered nothing will be read

Obviously a proper fix would be better

> When the following code is run an error "Underlying input stream returned zero bytes"
is produced. If the commented line is uncommented it can be seen that the ZipArchiveInputStream
returned 0 bytes. This only happens the first time read is called, subsequent calls work as
expected i.e. the following code actually works correctly with that line uncommented!

Also I believe whilst ZipFile can iterate over entries fast due to being able to look at the
master table whilst ZipArchiveInputStream cannot. Is there anyway of instantiating a ZipFile
from a zip file inside another zip file without first extracting the nested zip file?
