Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMPRESS-238) Add RAR archive support
Date Wed, 30 Oct 2013 10:50:32 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-238?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13808950#comment-13808950
] 

Stefan Bodewig commented on COMPRESS-238:
-----------------------------------------

AFAIU the format is proprietary but open source libraries exist that allow unarchiving - the
license explicitly prohibits reverse-engineering of the compression algorithm.

The ASF lists the license of the UNRAR lib as one that is acceptable for a binary depencency.

> There is an Unrar library with a license that has been deemed acceptable for use in Apache
projects - I think TIKA already uses it.  https://github.com/edmund-wagner/junrar
