Compress folders/files and create .tar.gz (Tar archive with GunZip Compression) and .zip (ZIP compression) file in Java

Hi friends,

Today I will explain how easily we can compress files and folders in java.

I have used a third part library which so simple to use.

Download the .jar from the following URL
https://rauschig.org/jarchivelib/download.html

Now, create a java class and create .tar.gz and .zip files.

Sample source code

package gunziptest;

import java.io.File;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.util.logging.Level;
import java.util.logging.Logger;
import org.rauschig.jarchivelib.ArchiveFormat;
import org.rauschig.jarchivelib.Archiver;
import org.rauschig.jarchivelib.ArchiverFactory;
import org.rauschig.jarchivelib.CompressionType;

/**

 * @author psrdotcom
 */
public class GunZipTest {

    /**
     * @param args the command line arguments
     */
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Archive file name
        String archiveName = "archive";
        // test is destination folder
        File destination = new File("test");
        // source folder has files and sub-folders
        File archive = null;
        
        // zip compression
        Archiver archiver = ArchiverFactory.createArchiver(ArchiveFormat.ZIP);
        try {
            archive = archiver.create(archiveName, destination, source);
            if(archive != null && archive.isFile()) {
                System.out.println("gunziptest.GunZipTest.main()" + "zip file created");
            }
        } catch (IOException ex) {
            Logger.getLogger(GunZipTest.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
        }

        // tar.gz compression
        archiver = ArchiverFactory.createArchiver(ArchiveFormat.TAR, CompressionType.GZIP);
        try {
            archive = archiver.create(archiveName, destination, source);
            if(archive != null && archive.isFile()) {
                System.out.println("gunziptest.GunZipTest.main()" + "zip file created");
            }
        } catch (IOException ex) {
            Logger.getLogger(GunZipTest.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
        }
    }
}

Hope, you will find this useful.

Eclipse reset/enable workspace preference on startup

Hi all,

Today, I have come across a situation where I want to choose the one of the workspaces i have worked before.

In general, eclipse will prompt for workspace location on startup
But, if you have checked "Consider this as default workspace and don't ask again" option, then next time when you start eclipse, you won't get the prompt for workspace selection.

Re-enable/Reset workspace preference on eclipse startup


  1. Click on eclipse "Window->Preferences"
  2. Go to "General->Startup/Shutdown->Workspaces"
  3. Check "Prompt for workspace on startup" or use keyboard shortcut "Alt+w" 
  4. Now, exit the eclipse
  5. Start the eclipse
You should be able to see the workspace selection on eclipse startup screen.

Happy coding!!
