GZipInputStream & ZipInputStream?

Hi all ,

I am trying to stream data from zip files. Everything works fine when I get Gzip files and use the GZipInputStream. When I use the same code and switch the GZipInputStream to ZipInputStream it does not work. It looks like the first line being read in a null? Any thoughts? Here is a snip of code I am useing



Thanks,

AMD

Gzip and Zip files have different formats and require different handling. Have a look at this Zip example and compare it to this Gzip example.

Ah so I am guessing I need to add the ZipEntry entry = in.getNextEntry();
to clear the null that I am getting on the first line?
