The unfortunate problem here is that java Zip is incompatible with regular Zip algorithms. You can only open Zip files that have been made by a java Zip file writer - not Winzip archives. Hopefully this will be corrected in a later version of the JDK

Which version of JDK are you using? In JDK 1.3 it is possible to open zip files which are created using Winzip or any other archiving tool. I am not sure about older versions but your program should work fine on JDK1.3.
