Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMPRESS-391) Zip entries alignment
Date Wed, 26 Apr 2017 17:54:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-391?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15985261#comment-15985261

Stefan Bodewig commented on COMPRESS-391:
-----------------------------------------

Have you got any details what "alignment" means? Do you know how it is achieved? I can imagine
using zip extra fields for padding but that won't work unless you know the deflated size upfront.

> Similarly to COMPRESS-390, there are requirements of the zip content to be mapped directly
into memory and therefore may require special alignment on the embedded files.
> One of the cases was (still is?) Android APK for which zipalign utility was created.
> It would be useful if commons-compress ZipArchiveOutputStream supports something similar
directly in its API.
