Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMPRESS-328) TarArchiveEntry preserveLeadingSlashes has no effect on setName

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-328?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15101784#comment-15101784

Torsten Curdt commented on COMPRESS-328:
----------------------------------------

Cool - then I'll commit the changes as outlined in 2) and add it to the release notes.

As for the {{setName}}: Imagine reading a {{TarArchiveEntry}} and writing it out to another
archive - and in the process renaming the entries. You could create a new {{TarArchiveEntry}}
to write from the {{TarArchiveEntry}} read - or mutate the one read. The {{setName}} use case
is the latter.

>             Project: Commons Compress
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Torsten Curdt
>            Priority: Minor
>
> We've run into an inconsistency with the TarArchiveEntry at jdeb.
>   https://github.com/tcurdt/jdeb/issues/217
> You can create a `TarArchiveEntry(String name, boolean preserveLeadingSlashes)` but the
`preserveLeadingSlashes` is only applied in the constructor.
> https://github.com/apache/commons-compress/blob/master/src/main/java/org/apache/commons/compress/archivers/tar/TarArchiveEntry.java#L392
> I am proposing to turn `preserveLeadingSlashes` into a read-only property and use the
value on `setName()`, too (instead of just false).
> This has some implications and maybe some backwards compatibility issues - but even then
I think it would be the right thing to do.
> I am happy to make the change but thought to discuss this first.
