ZIP files

The ZIP file sequencer extracts the files and folders contained in the ZIP archive file, extracting the files and folders into the repository using JCR's nt:file and nt:folder built-in node types. The structure of the output thus matches the logical structure of the contents of the ZIP file.


This sequencer generates a graph structure that maps to the files and folders in the ZIP file. An example (listed in the JCR document view) from sequencing a ZIP file written into /a/foo and containing one file, /x/y/z.txt is provided below:

<foo jcr:primaryType="zip:file"
  <x jcr:primaryType="nt:folder"
    <y jcr:primaryType="nt:folder"
      <z.txt jcr:primaryType="nt:file">
        <jcr:content jcr:primaryType="nt:resource"
                     jcr:data="This is the file content"
                     jcr:mimeType="text/plain" />

The CND for the zip:file node type is listed below.

[zip:file] > nt:folder, mix:mimeType

To use this sequencer, simply include the modeshape-sequencer-zip JAR in your application and configure the repository similar to:

    "name" : "ZIP Sequencer Test Repository",
    "sequencing" : {
        "removeDerivedContentWithOriginal" : true,
        "sequencers" : {
            "ZIP Sequencer" : {
                "classname" : "zipsequencer",
                "pathExpressions" : [ "default:/(*.zip)/jcr:content[@jcr:data] => /zip" ]
