Component/s: Storage - Text & CSV
Zip is a very common compression format. Create a compressed CSV file with column headers: data.csv.zip.
Define a storage plugin config for the file, call it "dfs.myws", set delimiter = ",", extract header = true, skip header = false.
Run a simple query:
SELECT * FROM dfs.myws.`data.csv.zip`
The result is garbage as the CSV reader is trying to parse Zipped data as if it were text.
DRILL-5506 asks how to do this; the responder said to add a library to the path. Better would be to simply support zip out-of-the-box as a default format.
