what algorithm does "mszip" use?


  • Hello all,

        I wrote a program to poll data from server, to reduce the size of package, I compress the data at server using java.util.zip, and it use DEFLATED algorithm. But I failed to decompress it by using Windows.Storage.Compression.Decompressor(). Do they use different algorithm, or Decompressor cann't use for decompress data from server?

  • Hello Haaaappy,

    The following algorithms can be used by the Windows.Storage.Compression.Decompressor:

    Mszip | mszip - The compressor will use the MSZIP compression algorithm.
    Xpress | xpress - The compressor will use the XPRESS compression algorithm.
    XpressHuff | xpressHuff - The compressor will use the XPRESS compression algorithm with Huffman encoding.
    Lzms | lzms - The compressor will use the LZMS compression algorithm.

    CompressAlgorithm enumeration

    I hope this helps,
