Re: [equinox-dev] [prov] Download manager support for pack200


As Pascal mentioned, when we first started experimenting with Pack200 we had memory problems.  It seemed that Pack200's internal data was static and not cleared between each jar that was packed.  So once we had packed a reasonable number of jars we started running out of memory.

It could be that we had been doing something wrong.  It is also possible that we could work around this by playing with class loaders (under the assumption that if the classloader was garbage collected, all that static memory would go away).

Re: [equinox-dev] [prov] Download manager support for pack200





Just out of curiosity, why do you use the external binary to do the
pack/unpack and not the java.util.jar.Pack200 class? It seems to me that
a fragment that is EE dependent (require Java 1.5 or higher) would be
ideal here. Those who run lower then Java 5 simply would not have
pack200 which is kind of natural isn't it?
