A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
There are input streams to read data, There's an input
stream to inflate while reading compressed data, but
there's no input stream to deflate while reading
uncompressed data. Likewise, there's no output stream that
will inflate while writing compressed data.
All examples showing how to compress data before sending
over a network assume you have an output stream that you
can use to send data over. If instead, you need to send
data as packets or using a third party API, there's no easy
way to do so unless you write your own DeflaterInputStream
and InflaterOutputStream. It seems like these should be
part of the java.util.zip package.
This bug can be reproduced always.
