From the past experiences i know that Java zip file streaming doesnt support files greater than 4GB and is still in the bug list of jdk. So we are using other API's like truezip to do the same.

But recently when i tried to unzip a GZIP format file > 4GB using java.util.zip.GZIPInputStream it worked. Does anyone know why and how it works only for GZIP format files? Still whats the upper size limit for java.util.zip.GZIPInputStream reader.

Thanks,

Ajith.
