Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMPRESS-428) Adding option to auto-select final method(DEFLATED or STORED) for ZipArchiveOutputStream
Date Thu, 09 Nov 2017 07:51:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-428?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16245327#comment-16245327
] 

Stefan Bodewig commented on COMPRESS-428:
-----------------------------------------

In most cases you don't know the compressed size upfront. In order to implement this functionality
you'd have to compress the entry's data and keep in memory (or a temporary file) together
with the original data (also in memory or a temporary file). The "in memory" part means you'd
keep more than twice the size of the original data there, something the docs should better
state clearly.

>          Components: Compressors
>    Affects Versions: 1.13
>         Environment: commons-compress 1.13
>            Reporter: Fuwei Chin
>            Priority: Minor
>              Labels: compress, deflated, stored
>             Fix For: 1.16

> Before writing "deflated" data to output stream, check if the compressed size of a zip
archive entry is bigger than or equal to its original size, if so then use method "stored"
instead, just like what 7-Zip does when creating a  zip file.
> The optimization above can be done by 
>   1. adding a new option "DEFLATED_IF_NECESSARY" for ZipArchiveOutputStream#method.
>   2. auto-selecting final method(DEFLATED or STORED) if DEFLATED_IF_NECESSARY specified.
