Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMPRESS-327) Support in-memory processing for ZipFile
Date Tue, 17 Nov 2015 08:42:11 GMT


Stefan Bodewig commented on COMPRESS-327:

The comment is going to be almost completely off-topic for the issue at hand.  The only relevant
bit: The main problem is that {{SeekableInputStream}} requires Java7 which might make the
next release incompatible enough with 1.10 to warrant a new major release (officially Compress
1.x supports Java5).

[~damjan] I don't remember seeing you post to the dev list, must have missed it (or it never
reached the list?).  

The 2.x branch;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/compress-2.0
is stalled more than abandoned, I'm not sure this makes a difference, though.  IMHO the ideas
are viable but I've run out of time (or rather spent my OSS time slices elsewhere).  It would
be a lot easier to find motivation picking it up again if other people would join.

> 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.)
