Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMPRESS-327) Support in-memory processing for ZipFile
Date Wed, 18 Nov 2015 13:57:11 GMT


Stefan Bodewig commented on COMPRESS-327:

We might be better off with discussing this on the dev list :-)

[~damjan] I'll look into the patch soonish, but likely not before Sunday.  There is no design
doc for the 2.x branch, just a couple of mail threads to the dev list from late 2013, early
2014 (I think the first message I sent was

> ZipFile (and SevenZFile) currently require a File argument, but it would be nice to support
in-memory byte buffers rather than requiring temp files.  Perhaps create a new SeekableInputStream
class (or SeekableDataInput interface) and add corresponding constructors.
> For convenience, perhaps also add a utility class that wraps a ByteBuffer and/or byte[]
and implements the new interface.
> (The sevenz package appears to have a similar limitation, so it might make sense to add
the support there at the same time, but I personally don't have a need for that.)
