j7zip-extractor is a fork of the J7Zip project intended to be used only for extracting the contents of a 7zip archive into a specified directory. Consequently, it doesn't support creating 7z archives or listing their contents.
This version supports only
archives with Copy or LZMA codec.
j7zip-extractor also includes a version of the JAVA LZMA SDK.
LZMA is default and general compression method of 7z format in 7-Zip compression program (www.7-zip.org). LZMA provides high compression ratio and very fast decompression.
LZMA is an improved version of famous LZ77 compression algorithm. It was improved in way of maximum increasing of compression ratio, keeping high decompression speed and low memory requirements for decompressing.
