Are you looking to create a web service or web application to replace ftp? If so, J2SE includes a java.util.zip package for the purpose of reading and writing the zip format.

You're question is more appropriate to the General Computing forum. I will move it there for you.

better solution: install cygwin and tar them all on your windows computer.
Then ftp the tar to your unix computer and untar there.
http://www.cygwin.com I believe it was.
can never remember the tar commandline options, check the manpages for those.
