ok, I have been using the java.util.zip package for unzipping zip files but now I have a problem that is that I need to use this on a larger zip file "500mb" plus and I need to read the list of entries one at a time and cycle there these pulling one file out of the zip archieve process and delete that file and than pull another file out of the zip archive. The problem is that java.util.zip is to slow, this could take hours upon hours "15+". Is there any other zip packages other than "java.util.zip" on the market that is faster?
thanks,
