This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
I would like to unzip a zip file which contains 2 text files and another zip file inside it.
For example, the zip file to unzip is called "Books.zip" and it contains 2 text files and another zip file called "Price.zip".
I googled for the unzipping code commonly found on the net and used it. But the problem is that the code can only unzip the 2 text files. It seems unable to retrieve the contents inside the "Price.zip" folder.
The code used is shown below:
How do I unzip and retrieve all the contents of a zip file which contains another zip file?
For unzipping it doesn't matter what type the files are; they're just treated as bytes anyway. The process doesn't work recursively, though. After you've unzipped Books.zip, you'll need to re-run this code with Price.zip.

That should allow you to unzip the second file without extracting it. I'm a bit lazy regarding the copying here, but basically reading from a ZipInputStream reads everything for the current entry. You need to close that entry and go the next entry and copy everything again, until your done.
