Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMPRESS-327) Support in-memory processing for ZipFile
Date Tue, 17 Nov 2015 08:49:10 GMT

Damjan Jovanovic commented on COMPRESS-327:
-------------------------------------------

It was a 30 September 2015 email entitled "[COMPRESS] generalize RandomAccessFile in ZipFile
and SevenZFile", link here:
http://www.mail-archive.com/dev@commons.apache.org/msg49795.html

I found the names of methods in 2.x were unintuitive, and how it's supposed to be used is
confusing. Is there any design notes or documentation?

> 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.)
