Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMPRESS-390) Expose zip stream offset and size via API
Date Fri, 02 Jun 2017 14:18:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-390?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16034768#comment-16034768

Simon Spero commented on COMPRESS-390:
--------------------------------------

[~bodewig] - the XZ dependency was just the easiest hack. Annoyingly, it's an abstract class,
not an interface.  SeekableChannels are probably where the actual answers lie :)

> In certain cases it may be useful to get information about where in the archive the stream
starts and ends. Typically when zip is used as resource container and the resources are then
mapped directly into memory, but not only.
> The size and compressed size are already available but not the stream offset.
> This can be applied to other archive types as well, therefore it would make sense to
put this into basic interface - ArchiveEntry. But not necessarily all of them have to support
it.
