java.util.zip + windows XP troubles

Post by bmckeeve » Fri, 15 Aug 2003 02:51:26


My Java app is storing data in a zip file (multiple ZipEntries). I
can open these zip files with Winzip fine, but the built-in zip
support for Windows XP shows them to be empty. It's not a show
stopper, since the zip files aren't really for human consumption, but
it will probably generate support calls.

Has anyone else seen this?

It's a remote chance, but I've hit problems relating to this. Is your app
storing filenames using backslash, '\', as a separator ? If so, then I've had
difficulty reading such files using Windows utilities on Wiindows boxes.
