Subject [jira] [Closed] (COR-27) dfutil -unzip should preserve time stamps
Date Fri, 13 Feb 2015 03:48:11 GMT


Peter Kelly closed COR-27.
    Resolution: Not a Problem

dfutil -unzip is only there for testing the zip functionality - it's not intended as a general-purpose
unzipping tool (there are plenty of those and it's outside the scope of Corinthia to provide
this functionality).

Our use of zip/unzip functionality in Corinthia is only for the purpose of creating and modifying
package formats like OOXML, ODF, and EPUB which use zip as their format. The DFStorage abstraction
represents only filenames and contents and is deliberately simplified to exclude information
that isn't necessary for this purpose. For .docx, .odt, .epub and similar file formats, the
only relevant timestamp information is that on the archive itself.
