Description Martin Weiler 2015-09-09 06:29:14 EDT
Description of problem:
Trying to open jboss-bpmsuite-6.1.2-patch.zip on Windows with built in zip utility fails:

Windows cannot open the folder

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download jboss-bpmsuite-6.1.2-patch.zip to a Windows machine
2. Try to extract it using Windows Explorer

Actual results:
Extracting fails

Expected results:
Extracting works as expected

Additional info:
This is due to the file name limit of 260 characters in Windows. The patch archive, however, contains files which exceed this limit:

$ unzip -l jboss-bpmsuite-6.1.2-patch.zip |awk -F' ' '{print $4}'|wc -L

Example of such a long path:

This problem is showing up with the zip distributions of the platform as well, see related BZ:

- Use 3rd party tools (eg. 7zip) to extract the zip file
- Use java's jar command to extract the zip file:
jar.exe -xvf jboss-bpmsuite-6.1.2-patch.zip

This is the same/similar issue to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1203726#c9

Looking at the comments in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1203726#c11
Could we mark this as fixed?
