Subject Re: Parsing a file inside a zip file locking zip file on windows
Date Mon, 16 Jul 2018 20:37:17 GMT

I think this is a general problem of the JarURLConnection, especially if in caching mode.
I think if you do some of the steps to open a stream yourself you can influence that better.
I might be able to dig up a more detailed example later if you still need it. (It might not
be a good idea to rely on the static setUseCache(false) method)

You only see that on Windows because the other OS allows you to delete open files (however
the file handle will linger around on those OS, too)

Betreff: Parsing a file inside a zip file locking zip file on windows

I've hit a bit of an odd case, that I'm hoping someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong, or
how to fix it.
As part of a transform (using Saxon), we're processing files that are inside a zip file. 
To access the files we're using a 'jar' URI, however after accessing/parsing the file it seems
to be locked, and so cannot be deleted until the java program terminates.
I believe I've created a reproducing case:

import java.io.File;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.net.URISyntaxException;

import javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilder;
import javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory;
import javax.xml.parsers.ParserConfigurationException;

import org.w3c.dom.Document;
import org.xml.sax.SAXException;

import com.google.common.io.Files;

public class CleanupInvestigation {
public static void main(String[] args)
throws IOException, SAXException, ParserConfigurationException, URISyntaxException, InterruptedException
File input = new File("src/test/resources/books.zip");
File inputCopy = new File("src/test/resources/booksCopy.zip");
Files.copy(input, inputCopy);

DocumentBuilder builder = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance().newDocumentBuilder();
Document doc = builder.parse("jar:file:src/test/resources/booksCopy.zip!/app.xml");

System.out.println("File delete (booksCopy.zip): " + inputCopy.delete());

I'm running this using Xerces 2.12.0 running on a Windows 10 machine, talking with the Saxon
guys its looks like it works ok on a Mac (i.e. the booksCopy.zip file can be deleted).

If anyone has any ideas on what the issue might be that would be great.
