First time try to create a zip file by using java zip api. It works just fine, there is one thing I can not do, I can not create an empty folder in the zip file that I am creating?
Can a zip file contain an empty folder? If it can how?
Thank you.

Hmmm... this doesn't seem to belong in the Swing/JFC/AWT forum... I'll move it to Java in General (Intermediate)...

Why can't you just put a small file in the folder, to keep the folder.

Just a thought, if it doesn't work, that is a good idea to get around it. Thanks for your advice.
I have did a search on Google, seems there is not a good answer to it.
If any one has any idea please let me know.

Are those the certifications what you have got?

You are welcome! Neil.
Yes, those are my certs. It took me a while and a couple of bucks to get them.

You could also add "Longest, loudest signature at JavaRanch" to the list.

How do you measure signal to noise ratio?

Signal? noise? I never thought about those.
At least, Maxwell don't make a lot of noise.
