ZipFile

Name

ZipFile

Synopsis

Class Name:

java.util.zip.ZipFile

Superclass:

java.lang.Object

Immediate Subclasses:

None

Interfaces Implemented:

None

Availability:

New as of JDK 1.1

Description

The ZipFile class represents a ZIP file. Unlike with a ZipInputStream, you can read the entries in a ZipFile nonsequentially. Internally, the class uses a RandomAccessFile so that you can read the entries from the file in any order. You can obtain a list of the entries in this ZIP file by calling entries(). Given an entry, you can get an InputStream for that entry using getInputStream().
