Pellucid is a free and open source Java library built for transparent access to files and ZIP/JAR archives.
All archives will be handles as directories, so it is easy to browse into them. Pellucid provides a convenient way of integration into existing JAVA projects.
The main idea is to drill the File class by adding the ability of transparently handling archives to it.
Doing so all the existing code using File objects may stay the same, but now you are able to browse through archives just as they were regular directories on the file system.
From the programmer´s point of view there´s no longer a difference between the regular file system and the contents of ZIP/JAR archives.
