The Apache Compress Antlib offers tasks and types for the archive and
compression formats like CPIO, XZ, Pack200 and AR supported by Apache
Commons Compress as well as re-implementations of the formats already
supported by Ant’s core.
Version 1.2 embraces Apache Commons Compress 1.4 and thus adds tasks and
resources for XZ compression and supports a wider variety of tar
dialects including some extended parts of the current POSIX standard.
Support for the XZ compression format is based on the XZ for Java
library of the Tukaani Project, which is required at runtime in
addition to Commons Compress.
Source and binary distributions are available from the Apache Ant
