Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-538) Implement a nio's 'direct buffer' based wrapper over zlib to improve performance of java.util.zip.{De|In}flater as a 'custom codec'
Date Wed, 08 Nov 2006 00:08:53 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-538?page=comments#action_12447983 ] 
            
Owen O'Malley commented on HADOOP-538:
--------------------------------------

The CompressionCodec interface should not extend Configurable.
The DefaultCodec should extend Configured.
The rationale is that CompressionCodecs in general do not need to be configured. If the Codecs
are Configurable, they will be configured by ReflectionUtils.newInstance(Class).

> There has been more than one instance where java.util.zip's {De|In}flater classes perform
unreliably, a simple wrapper over zlib-1.2.3 (latest stable) using java.nio.ByteBuffer (i.e.
direct buffers) should go a long way in alleviating these woes.
