This is the program for compression & uncompression using GZIP....

public class Gzippin {

public static void main(String[] args) {
// TODO code application logic here
String inStr = "Department of Information and Communication Technology";

ByteArrayOutputStream baos = new ByteArrayInputStream();
GZIPOutputStream gos = new GZIPInputStream(baos);

PrintWriter pw=new PrintWriter(gos);

byte [] bar = baos.toByteArray();
System.out.println (new String(bar));

ByteArrayInputStream bais= new ByteArrayInputStream(bar);
GZIPInputStream gis= new GZIPInputStream(bais);
byte [] buffer= new byte[1024];
if (gis.available() > 0),0,1024);
System.out.println(new String(buffer));

if (buffer.equals(inStr))
System.out.println("Compressed and Uncompressed strings are EQUAL");


This gives me two errors when I exected in Net beans IDE...

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\JavaApplication2\src\javaapplication2\ cannot find symbol
symbol : constructor ByteArrayInputStream()
location: class
ByteArrayOutputStream baos = new ByteArrayInputStream();

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\JavaApplication2\src\javaapplication2\ cannot find symbol
symbol : constructor GZIPInputStream(
location: class
GZIPOutputStream gos = new GZIPInputStream(baos);

Thanks in advance for ur answers....

Yout got what look like some bad cut-and-paste errors here. You're creating new XXXInputStreams, and assigning them to variables of type XXXOutputStream; in the process, you're using constructors that the InputStream classes don't have. Just look at the error messages carefully, and you'll see the problem.
