Is there size limit for the zip file used by Jazz Importer?


Guowei Jim Hu (1.0k410053) | asked May 18 '09, 12:03 p.m.
I have created a 3.2GB zip file in the format of Bugzilla output in XML and I got the following error when trying to run Jazz improter to import from it:

Exception reading ZIP file
invalid END header (bad central directory offset)

I tried a smaller set of the records and it works fine. So I am wondering if there is a size limit for the import zip file.

Hi

This sounds more like a zip file error. Can you check if the zip file is valid.

That was my initial though too but after trying a few more time and searched the error message I am not sure anymore.

I saw many posts on the intenet regarding this error message and many seems to be related to Java's zip file handling:
java.util.zip.ZipException: invalid END header (bad central directory offset).

I split the 3.2 GB zip into a few separate files and make each be less than 1GB and the import seems working so far.

So it seems to me the size does matters.
