archiver module contains the properties and rules for creating (compressed) archives. The output artifact has the file tag
"archiver.archive". The sole input artifact is a text file containing the list of files to package, with one file path per line. The paths can be relative, in which case they will be looked for in workingDirectory. The file tag of this input artifact is
archiveBaseName : string
The base name of the archive file. That is, the file name without any extensions.
command : string
The path to the executable used to create the archive.
This is usually the native tool corresponding to the archive type being produced, but may fall back to another tool also capable of producing that archive type if the native tool is not installed on the host system. This behavior is especially useful on platforms such as Windows, where the native tools for producing
zip archives in particular are much less likely to be installed.
The following table lists the supported archive types and the tools capable of producing them, listed in search order from left to right:
|zip||zip (Info-Zip), 7z, jar (from Java JDK)|
Default: Depends on type.
compressionLevel : string
How much effort to put into the compression of a
Possible values for zip are:
7-Zip only supports 0 and the odd numbers above.
Higher numbers result in a smaller archive, but the compression process will take more time.
If the value is left undefined, the default compression level is used.
compressionType : string
How to compress a
Possible options are:
undefined, which uses the archiver's default compression type.
tar archives, otherwise
flags : stringList
Custom options not covered by any of the other properties.
outputDirectory : string
Where to put the archive file.
type : string
Which kind of archiver to use.
The currently supported values are:
workingDirectory : string
The directory in which to execute the archiver tool specified by command.
