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


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.

projects - I think TIKA already uses it.
