What, another ZIP abstraction?
During the development of ZeroTurnaround products we have had a growing need to uncompress and compress ZIP archives. For example, JRebel enables users to describe classpath and ServletContext resource locations using a rebel.xml file. Archives listed in the configuration file are automatically extracted into temporary directories. Our other product, LiveRebel detects the deployed applications both in exploded and packaged forms, and sends the application archives to the LiveRebel Command Center. The exploded deployments need to be compressed before any sending can happen.
