Program: How to decompress byte array in java?


Description:

java.util.zip package provides Inflater class to decompress byte array. The sample code to decompress a byte array is given in the below example. Also the example contains a code to compress the byte array before decompressing it.


Code:
/**
* Decompression class
**/
package com.java2novice.zip;

import java.io.ByteArrayOutputStream;
import java.util.zip.Inflater;

public class MyByteArrayDecompress {

public byte[] decompressByteArray(byte[] bytes){
		
		ByteArrayOutputStream baos = null;
		Inflater iflr = new Inflater();
		iflr.setInput(bytes);
		baos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
		byte[] tmp = new byte[4*1024];
		try{
			while(!iflr.finished()){
				int size = iflr.inflate(tmp);
				baos.write(tmp, 0, size);
			}
		} catch (Exception ex){
			
		} finally {
			try{
				if(baos != null) baos.close();
			} catch(Exception ex){}
		}
		
		return baos.toByteArray();
	}

	public static void main(String a[]){
		
		MyByteArrayCompress mbc = new MyByteArrayCompress();
		byte[] content = mbc.compressByteArray("Compress java2novice.com".getBytes());
		System.out.println("Compressed Data: "+new String(content));
		MyByteArrayDecompress mba = new MyByteArrayDecompress();
		byte[] decom = mba.decompressByteArray(content);
		System.out.println("Decomplressed Data: "+new String(decom));
	}
}

/**
* Compression class
**/
package com.java2novice.zip;

import java.io.ByteArrayOutputStream;
import java.util.zip.Deflater;

public class MyByteArrayCompress {

	public byte[] compressByteArray(byte[] bytes){
		
		ByteArrayOutputStream baos = null;
		Deflater dfl = new Deflater();
		dfl.setLevel(Deflater.BEST_COMPRESSION);
		dfl.setInput(bytes);
		dfl.finish();
		baos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
		byte[] tmp = new byte[4*1024];
		try{
			while(!dfl.finished()){
				int size = dfl.deflate(tmp);
				baos.write(tmp, 0, size);
			}
		} catch (Exception ex){
			
		} finally {
			try{
				if(baos != null) baos.close();
			} catch(Exception ex){}
		}
		
		return baos.toByteArray();
	}
	
	public static void main(String a[]){
		
		MyByteArrayCompress mbc = new MyByteArrayCompress();
		byte[] content = mbc.compressByteArray("Compress java2novice.com".getBytes());
		System.out.println(new String(content));
	}
}

Output:
Compressed Data: xs-(J-.VJ,K4/LNKst	2
Decomplressed Data: Compress java2novice.com

Class, Constructor and Primitive data types
Class is a template for multiple objects with similar features and it is a blue print for objects. It defines a type of object according to the data the object can hold and the operations the object can perform. Constructor is a special kind of method that determines how an object is initialized when created. Primitive data types are 8 types and they are: byte, short, int, long, float, double, boolean, char.
