[GRADLE-1952] For certain files tarTree cannot detect that the archive is not a proper tar Created: 22/Nov/11 Updated: 10/Feb/17 Resolved: 10/Feb/17
For certain files tarTree cannot detect that the archive is not a proper tar. The effect is that the expanded contents are gibberish. At the moment, we use 3rd party tools to untar/decompress tar. It can be reproduced, for example with certain small zips or compressed tars that tarTree doesn't handle, or with a very small text file passed to the tarTree method.
It doesn't feel like a huge deal, nobody has reported that yet and this problem seems to be with the tarTree for a while (i've tested with some older version, too).
