This provide an experimental implementation of a Java API to the combine archive (http://co.mbine.org/documents/archive).
The archive maintains the manifest of the archive and provides access to the metadata file to enable custom annotation of the archive. It provides basic annotation of the archive including the creation and modification dates of the contents. This could be extended to include, for example, the date elements were added to the archive etc.
The API is relatively simple to use. There are three examples files in the test directory that show how to create, populate and iterate a new archive and also how to update an existing archive. These are called:
The project is built by using Apache Ant and uses Apache Ivy for dependency resolution. Recently, we have created
pom.xml file to allow developers able to build and deploy the library with Maven.
Building from command line
# Ant # fetch dependencies ant resolve # create the JARS containing binaries, sources and documentation ant jarAll
For a list of all available targets please use
# Maven # mvn clean compile test verify package install
Eclipse and IntelliJ IDEA project files are available in the project's root folder.
Ensure you perform dependency resolution (by running
ant resolve) so that your classpath
is configured correctly.
