That conversion may be taking place, but it isn't the classes from the standard Zip API that's doing it. It would be something in your code, if it's happening at all. But you don't even seem to be sure that it is happening. It might be a good idea to identify the problem before you start trying to solve it.
(For example, the people who are creating the zip file might be doing the EBCDIC-to-ASCII conversion as well.) [ May 16, 2006: Message edited by: Paul Clapham ]

We had to load our zipped EBCDIC into a DB2 table defined as binary (We could not prevent ASCII conversion when reading from a var_char table). Thereafter byte-stream java IO was used, followed by unzip, then ASCII conversion
