Coldfusion and tar gz files unzipping - experts only

Last Modified: 2013-12-24
I have a unique situation where I get a .tar.gz file from an external source. This zipped file is basically a group of pdf files that are zipped into one .tar.gz file. I'm using CF 8 and I used the cfzip tag but it works for a .zip file but not for the .tar.gz file type. I need to find a way using cfscript or some java library so I can take this file and unzip all it's .pdf contents. Can somebody provide me with the script/code?
