I would like to use the Inflater/Deflater from a java-program to 
communicate with a c-program using the zlib impl. In my case I can't
do this due to the fact that I can't do Z_PARTIAL_FLUSH, it would IMHO
be VERY nice if the "native" zlib inflate/deflate were exposed in
the Inflater/Deflater classes, this would make the use more generic.

EVALUATION Three flush modes NO_FLUSH, SYNC_FLUSH and FULL_FLUSH have been introduced in Deflater class in JDK7/b77 to address this particular issue. The correspnding id# used for integratrion is 4206909

WORK AROUND Workaround patch from tomcat 6 - https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=48738

EVALUATION Not sure if this is a reasonable and general request. Will investigate further into this. ###@###.### 2000-03-09
