public class: JarOutputStream [javadoc | source]
java.lang.Object
   java.io.OutputStream
      java.io.FilterOutputStream
         java.util.zip.DeflaterOutputStream
            java.util.zip.ZipOutputStream
               java.util.jar.JarOutputStream

All Implemented Interfaces:
    ZipConstants, Flushable, Closeable

The JarOutputStream class is used to write the contents of a JAR file to any output stream. It extends the class java.util.zip.ZipOutputStream with support for writing an optional Manifest entry. The Manifest can be used to specify meta-information about the JAR file and its entries.

Fields inherited from java.io.FilterOutputStream:
out
Constructor:
 public JarOutputStream(OutputStream out) throws IOException 
    Creates a new JarOutputStream with no manifest.
    Parameters:
    out - the actual output stream
    Throws:
    IOException - if an I/O error has occurred
    exception: IOException - if an I/O error has occurred
 public JarOutputStream(OutputStream out,
    Manifest man) throws IOException 
    Creates a new JarOutputStream with the specified Manifest. The manifest is written as the first entry to the output stream.
    Parameters:
    out - the actual output stream
    man - the optional Manifest
    Throws:
    IOException - if an I/O error has occurred
    exception: IOException - if an I/O error has occurred

Method from java.util.jar.JarOutputStream Detail:
 public  void putNextEntry(ZipEntry ze) throws IOException 
    Begins writing a new JAR file entry and positions the stream to the start of the entry data. This method will also close any previous entry. The default compression method will be used if no compression method was specified for the entry. The current time will be used if the entry has no set modification time.
