Hi,
I am try to zip the following file structure in my machine,

The problem here is i cant zip the above file structure using java. I have google and found following code sample but it only zip the files only inside a given folder.

In the above code the out is a folder and we need to have some files..also folder cannot be empty if so it throws a exception java.util.zip.ZipException or cant contain any sub folders even files inside it (ex;out\newfolder\image.jpeg) if so it throws a java.io.FileNotFoundException: out\newfolder (Access is denied).

In my case im costructig the above file structure by quering the database sometime empty folders along the folder structure can be have.

Can some one please tell me a solution?

Thank You.>
