When i try to upload a winzip file,it gets uploaded succesfully if there is some contents in the file and when i upload an empty file say 0 byte,it throws an error as per the logic.In some machines when i create an empty Winzip file it shows 22 bytes in the property view of the file and these empty files get uploaded which i dont want to.So i don't want to upload these files as they are empty.Can i have an help from your side in this regard?This also happens with Micrsoft word..

before uploading check whether there are any files in the winzip file by using zip utilities in java,if not present throw error.
