Exposing sliding window size in the java.util.zip.[Inflator|Defaltor] API

      I'm currently working on the implementation of the WebSocket
      permessage-deflate extension for Apache Tomcat. I am using the JRE
      provided classes java.util.zip.[Inflator|Defaltor] to do the compression
      and decompression.

      I have a working implementation but there is one feature I can't
      implement because the necessary API isn't available.

      The WebSocket permessage-deflate specification [1] allows both the
      client and server to specify a number between 8 to 15 inclusive
      indicating the base-2 logarithm of the LZ77 sliding window size. The
      purpose of this feature is to enable both the client and the server to
      limit the size of the buffer they need to maintain to reduce their
      memory footprint per connection.

      Would it be possible for the java.util.zip.Inflator and
      java.util.zip.Defaltor API to be extended to expose the LZ77 window
      size? My suggestion would be an additional constructor for each class
      that took and additional int parameter for window size but I'd be happy
      with any API that provided control of the window size.
