Bzip2 source

Hello experts,

I have downloaded bzip2 source code from http://www.kohsuke.org/bzip2/ . Since there is no documentation with the source code, I do not know how to call the function for compress/uncompress. Could someone give me a sample code that uses this library?
P.S. I found this code in java.sun.com forum, but it does not work.

Thanks


//---compress-----/
    public byte [] bzip2Compress(byte [] input) {
        //*.bz2
        ByteArrayOutputStream baos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
        CBZip2OutputStream bzip = null;
        try {
            bzip = new CBZip2OutputStream(baos);
            System.out.println(input.length);
            bzip.write(input, 0, input.length);
        } catch (IOException ex) {
            ex.printStackTrace();
        }
        System.out.println(baos.toString());
        output = baos.toByteArray();
        System.out.println("bzipcompress_output:\t" + output.length);
        return output;
    }

//----decompress---------------
    public byte [] bzip2Decompress(byte [] input, int actualDataSize) {
        //*.bz2
        ByteArrayInputStream bais = new ByteArrayInputStream(input);
        System.out.println("Test");
        CBZip2InputStream bzip = new CBZip2InputStream(bais);
        System.out.println("Test");
        ByteArrayOutputStream baos  = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
        output = new byte [actualDataSize];
        int numBytesRead = 0;
        //bzip =
        try {
            while((numBytesRead = bzip.read(output)) != -1) {
                baos.write(output, 0 , output.length);
            }
        } catch (IOException ex) {
            ex.printStackTrace();
        }
        output = baos.toByteArray();
        System.out.println("bzipdecompress_output" + output.length);
        return output;
    }

    public static void main(String [] args) {
        byte [] temp = null;
        byte [] temo = null;
        MainCompress cmp = new MainCompress();;
        String msg = "xcxcsfergergrtrthy";
        System.out.println(cmp.stream(msg.getBytes()));
        temp = cmp.bzip2Compress(msg.getBytes());
           
        try {
            System.out.write(temp);
        } catch (IOException ex) {
            ex.printStackTrace();
        }
        temo = cmp.bzip2Decompress(temp,5);
        System.out.println(temo.length);
         
    }

It does not work because I get null pointer exception error when I run decompress method. I think there is something wrong with the compress function. It always returns 1 byte no matter what the bytestring size.

You need to close the stream, or else it will not complete the bzip compression.

        try {
            bzip = new CBZip2OutputStream(baos);
            System.out.println(input.length);
            bzip.write(input, 0, input.length);
            bzip.close();  //  <-- here
        } catch (IOException ex) {
            ex.printStackTrace();
        }
