Subject [jira] [Updated] (COMPRESS-394) [Zip] Local `Version Needed To Extract` does not match Central Directory
Date Sat, 13 May 2017 22:18:04 GMT


Gary Gregory updated COMPRESS-394:
    Summary: [Zip] Local `Version Needed To Extract` does not match Central Directory  (was:
Zip - Local `Version Needed To Extract` does not match Central Directory)

> [Zip] Local `Version Needed To Extract` does not match Central Directory
> ------------------------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: COMPRESS-394
>                 URL:
>             Project: Commons Compress
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Archivers
>            Reporter: Plamen Totev
>            Priority: Minor
> Hi,
> This is followup on an issue reported on Plexus Archiver -
> Plexus Archiver uses {{ZipArchiveOutputStream}} to create zip archives. It constructs
the {{ZipArchiveOutputStream}} using {{BufferedOutputStream}}. As a result the output do not
provide random access and additional data descriptor records are added. Unfortunately this
leads to different values being set for {{version needed to extract}} field in the local file
header and in the central directory. It looks like that the root cause is the way the local
header {{version needed to extract}} field value is calculated:
> {code:java}
>         if (phased &&  !isZip64Required(entry.entry, zip64Mode)){
>         } else {
>             putShort(versionNeededToExtract(zipMethod, hasZip64Extra(ze)), buf, LFH_VERSION_NEEDED_OFFSET);
>         }
> {code}
> As you can see the need for data descriptors is not taken into account. On other hand
when the central directory is created the following is used to determine the minimum required
> {code:java}
>     private int versionNeededToExtract(final int zipMethod, final boolean zip64) {
>         if (zip64) {
>             return ZIP64_MIN_VERSION;
>         }
>         // requires version 2 as we are going to store length info
>         // in the data descriptor
>         return (isDeflatedToOutputStream(zipMethod)) ?
>                 INITIAL_VERSION;
>     }
> {code}
> As a side note: I'm not a zip expert by any means so I could be wrong, but my understanding
is that if Deflate compression is used then the minimum required version should be 2.0 regardless
if data descriptors are used or not.
