All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<SevenZMethod>

public enum SevenZMethod extends Enum<SevenZMethod>
The (partially) supported compression/encryption methods used in 7z archives.

All methods with a _FILTER suffix are used as preprocessors with the goal of creating a better compression ratio with the compressor that comes next in the chain of methods. 7z will in general only allow them to be used together with a "real" compression method but Commons Compress doesn't enforce this.

The BCJ_ filters work on executable files for the given platform and convert relative addresses to absolute addresses in CALL instructions. This means they are only useful when applied to executables of the chosen platform.

    • valueOf

      public static SevenZMethod valueOf(String name)
      Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
      name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
      the enum constant with the specified name
      IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
      NullPointerException - if the argument is null
