Java Web Archive Toolkit


This wiki describes the overall packages and also includes some detail on how the main classes are implemented.

For more fine grained information about the API the javadocs should be consulted.

This toolkit includes classes to read and validate Arc, GZip and Warc files. Furthermore reading and validating GZip compressed Arc and Warc files is also directly supported.

The code was originally intended for use only in a number of JHove2 modules, but since the classes could be of use outside JHove2 an independent project was created.

Package layout

The toolkit has the following package layout:

  • jwat-common: General purpose classes including specialized streams, binary->string encoding and common arc/warc http-response/payload code.
  • jwat-gzip: GZip input-stream/entry reader/validator.
  • jwat-arc: Contains Arc reader/validator specific classes.
  • jwat-warc: Contains Warc reader/validator specific classes.

Maven is required to build the project.
