I used the code given at the end to untar a tar.gz file. It works fine for few files. But for some files it gives FileNotFoundException. Can someone please suggest what is wrong with the code given below?

Thanks in advance.



import java.io.File;
import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.FileOutputStream;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.util.zip.GZIPInputStream;

import org.apache.tools.tar.TarEntry;
import org.apache.tools.tar.TarInputStream;

public class untarFiles
{

public static void main(String args[]) {

try {

untar("c:/Files/AnyFile.tar.gz",new File("c:/Files/"));
}

catch(Exception e) {

e.printStackTrace();

System.out.println(e.getMessage());
}

}
private static void untar(String tarFileName, File dest) throws IOException {

//assuming the file you pass in is not a dir

dest.mkdir();

//create tar input stream from a .tar.gz file

TarInputStream tin = new TarInputStream( new GZIPInputStream
( new FileInputStream(new File(tarFileName))));

//get the first entry in the archive

TarEntry tarEntry = tin.getNextEntry();

while (tarEntry != null){//create a file with the same name as the tarEntry

File destPath = new File(dest.toString() + File.separatorChar + tarEntry.getName());

if(tarEntry.isDirectory()){

destPath.mkdir();

} else {

FileOutputStream fout = new FileOutputStream(destPath);

tin.copyEntryContents(fout);

fout.close();
}
tarEntry = tin.getNextEntry();
}
tin.close();
}
}

Welcome to the JavaRanch.
If your code works for some files and doesn't work with others, I'd say the problem is with the files. What is the difference between those that work and those that don't?

You were right! Following this advice and trying with mkdirs() made it!

Thanks!
