Subject [jira] [Created] (COMPRESS-237) Long link support for TarArchiveOutputStream
Date Tue, 06 Aug 2013 22:35:49 GMT
Emmanuel Bourg created COMPRESS-237:
---------------------------------------

             Summary: Long link support for TarArchiveOutputStream
                 Key: COMPRESS-237
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-237
             Project: Commons Compress
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Archivers
    Affects Versions: 1.5
            Reporter: Emmanuel Bourg


TarArchiveOutputStream doesn't handle properly long link names, they are truncated silently
in most cases.
* In GNU mode a @LongLink entry should be created similarly to long names but with the 'K'
type ({{GNU_LONGLINK}}) instead of 'L' ({{GNU_LONGNAME}})
* In POSIX mode a pax header with the {{linkpath}} keyword should be added. This is already
implemented for links containing a non ASCII character.
* In the default ERROR mode no exception is thrown and the link is truncated.

The logic for adding a pax header on non ASCII characters should probably be reworked, as
it seems possible to have pax headers mixed with GNU @LongLink entries. I'm not sure this
is desirable.
