The problem I am having is that I my client uploads a .zip file and then I want to unzip it but this works fine when I have text files but when I have .jpg files it does not work.
The following is my code. Any suggestions would be great thank you david
public void extractFirstFile()
try {
// Open the ZIP file
String inFilename = fileName;
ZipInputStream in = new ZipInputStream(new FileInputStream(fileName));

// Get the first entry
ZipEntry entry = in.getNextEntry();

// Open the output file
String outFilename = "uladulla 007.jpg";
OutputStream out = new FileOutputStream(outFilename);

// Transfer bytes from the ZIP file to the output file
byte[] buf = new byte[1024];
int len;
while ((len = in.read(buf)) > 0) {
out.write(buf, 0, len);

// Close the streams
} catch (IOException e) {

Can you open the zip file with winzip? Maybee the data in the file is not in the right format?
