Compression algorithms

For my thesis , I need some compression algorithms, which work on bytes. I'm thinking about Hufmann, but maybe there are others already implemented.
The most important thing is, that I need the algorithms, the rest I can do by myself. Of course any java implementation or a hint or link is especially welcome.
Thanks in advance

Hallo Philipp,

in the Java SDK 1.1 there are some classes you can use.
Have a look in the package java.util.zip. There you will find
several classes for compression and decompression.

E. g. you can use the class GZIPOutputStream (or one of the classes that is more appropriate for you). The Constructor of the
class expects an OutputStream as parameter. You can use one of the provided subclasses of OutputStream to write directly to a file or write your on subclass of OutputStream to store your data
e. g. in a StringBuffer. There are also classes available for decompression, then you can subclass InputStream instead or use one of the provided subclasses.

I hope this information helps you.

Feel free to contact me directly via hofmann@brzn.de.

Success,

Juergen

There's always 'The Data Compression Book' from MST Books.
Not a mathematically in-depth book...but enough information to allow you to perform most any compression algorithm...you can always adapt what they give.
