Starting a compression operation will require a source for our data, which is not necessarily a File. The DataSource objects will automatically take care about releasing streams / resources, which is convenient but it means that they can not be used twice.


The Android friendly source can be created with new UriDataSource(context, uri) or simply using addDataSource(context, uri) in the compression builder.


A data source backed by a file descriptor. Use new FileDescriptorDataSource(context, descriptor) or simply addDataSource(context, descriptor) in the compression builder.


A data source backed by a file absolute path. Use new FilePathDataSource(context, path) or simply addDataSource(context, path) in the compression builder.

Method Description
addDataSource(Context, Uri) Adds a new source for the given Uri.
addDataSource(FileDescriptor) Adds a new source for the given FileDescriptor.
addDataSource(String) Adds a new source for the given file path.
addDataSource(DataSource) Adds a new source.
