The Java platform supports the creation and extraction of files in compressed formats. The java.util.zip package contains classes that provide support for processing ZIP files as well as GZIP files, other than its compression capabilities, the Gzip format allows to bundle multiple files in a single archive (a tarball), it is also commonly used to compress CGI scripts and is often used on Unix-like platforms instead of GNU tar, which only creates tar archives. There are several popular open source libraries available for developers: RoaringBitmap - A better compressed bitset in Java, SiliCompressor - use for Video and Image compression, snappy-java - JNI-based implementation to achieve comparable performance to the native C++ version. Find below the comprehensive list of 14 best Java Compression libraries.
