RE: [dsdp-pmc] [CQ 3272] java tar Version: 2.5


Thanks for pointing this out to me, I was not aware of these other options.

My only hesitation is size and license.  Our current public domain tar package is 25K and has no external dependencies.

Of the choices below, I'm inclined to use but we're under pressure to keep our distribution size down and ant.jar is 1.3M.

Is it really preferable to cut-copy-paste yet another tar handler rather than use a common implementation?  It looks to me like an independent tar package (perhaps from apache?) would help reduce the overall footprint.  I guess this has already been discussed?

Hi Dave,

Are you aware that there are already several existing implementations
of tar handlers in Eclipse? In PDE, you can try "Open Type" : "TarEntry"
With Eclipse 3.5 M7 candidate I get:

1. org.apache.ant_1.7.1.v20090120-1145/lib/ant.jar

2. org.eclipse.equinox.p2.core_1.0.100.v20090309-1800.jar


4. org.eclipse.ui.ide

If you already have an RSE dependency, you could just use the
RSE ArchiveHandler. Otherwise, you could just copy & paste the 
EPL'd code from ui.ide or p2 "internal" into your EPL'd code.

But perhaps "java tar" has additional features not covered here?
