TAR files with long files names are not supported
|Reported by:||Nicklas Nordborg||Owned by:||Nicklas Nordborg|
The package for TAR that is used in BASE (http://www.trustice.com/java/tar/) doesn't support long file names (>100 characters). This will result in truncated filenames if the TAR archive is unpacked on the BASE server.
Apache is working on a new package: http://commons.apache.org/sandbox/compress/ It is based on the old code, but has not yet been released. When Apache releases the package it might be a good idea to upgrade BASE to use it. The package also seems to provide support for the BZIP2 format, so we may also replace the current package for BZIP2 with the new package.
