Java ZipEntry setCrc() function with examples

  • Last Updated : 06 Mar, 2019


The setCrc() function is a part of java.util.zip package. The function is used to set the CRC value of the specified Zip Entry. The CRC is an error detecting code used to detect error in raw data.
Function Signature :

public void setCrc(long val)

Syntax :

zip_entry.setCrc(val);

Parameters :The function takes a long value, which represents the CRC value
Return value :The function does not return any value.
Exceptions :The function throws IllegalArgumentException if the specified CRC-32 value is less than 0 or greater than 0xFFFFFFFF

Below programs illustrates the use of setCrc() function

Example 1: We will create a file named zip_file and get the zip file entry using setEntry() function and then set the CRC-32 of the specified ZipEntry.”file.zip” is a zip file present in f: directory. We will take a “.zip” file as ZipEntry






// Java program to demonstrate the
// use of setCrc() function
  
import java.util.zip.*;
import java.util.Enumeration;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
  
public class solution {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
  
        try {
  
            // Create a Zip File
            ZipFile zip_file = new ZipFile("f:\\file1.zip");
  
            // set the Zip Entry using
            // the setEntry() function
            ZipEntry entry = zip_file.getEntry("file.zip");
  
            // set the Crc
            // using the setCrc()
            // function
            entry.setCrc(190);
  
            // get the Crc
            // using the getCrc()
            // function
            long input = entry.getCrc();
  
            // Display the Crc
            System.out.println("Crc : " + input);
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e.getMessage());
        }
    }
}
Output:
Crc : 190

Example 2: We will create a file named zip_file and get the zip file entry using getEntry() function and then set the CRC-32 of the specified ZipEntry.”file.zip” is a zip file present in f: directory. We will set the value of CRC to -1. We will take a “.cpp” file as ZipEntry




// Java program to demonstrate the
// use of setCrc() function
  
import java.util.zip.*;
import java.util.Enumeration;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
  
public class solution {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
  
        try {
  
            // Create a Zip File
            ZipFile zip_file = new ZipFile("f:\\file1.zip");
  
            // set the Zip Entry using
            // the setEntry() function
            ZipEntry entry = zip_file.getEntry("file1.cpp");
  
            // set the Crc
            // using the setCrc()
            // function
            entry.setCrc(-1);
  
            // get the Crc
            // using the getCrc()
            // function
            long input = entry.getCrc();
  
            // Display the Crc
            System.out.println("Crc : " + input);
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e.getMessage());
        }
    }
}
Output:
invalid entry crc-32

The function throws an error
