Hello Everybody,
i have a following code to unzip a zip file, but if i try to unzip
with the command: java UnZip C:\
There is a error which throw :
Extracting : c:\DA\ : c:\DA\<Native Method><init><><init><>
at UnZip.main<>
if i try to open with winzip there is no error, besides that i try to open another zip file with this program and the program could be opened without problem.

And i try another program from but without success

I think the problem special character such as "_/-%���" from within(or because the name of zip file "") the zip file, but i do not sure, if yes ? how do i overcome the problem ?
Can someone give me a hint ? thank you very much

Unfortunately, line 64 is...

Why does the jvm tell you the linenumber?
Perhaps to make the source of error easy to find?

Try in the saveEntry Method:

and ask yourself, if it is, what you expected...

Hallo everybody,
hallo Stefan, what do you mean with line 64, i think line 64 is not wrong.
I try another program code, but i got not success, the error is the same and if the zip file consist of subdirectory and ���(umlaute or special character), the program won't unzip it but if the zip file only consist of one directory without special character, it will be successfully. I have read many forum, they said that the problem is in encode and decode the special character(it is recommended to use UTF-8 or UTF-16). Is that right ? but how should i use it. Any Help will be appreciated.
