Class HttpZipLocator

All Implemented Interfaces:

public class HttpZipLocator extends Object implements AssetLocator
HttpZipLocator is similar to ZipLocator, except it allows loading assets from a .ZIP file on the web instead of on the local filesystem.

The root path must be a valid HTTP(S) URL pointing to ZIP or ZIP-like file (such as a JAR). For example,

The locator is designed in such a way that it does not require downloading the entire .ZIP file from the web in order to load assets from it. Instead, the ZIP header is extracted first, and then is used to lookup assets from within the ZIP file and download them as requested by the user.
