Why not? Trying to avoid the standard API is often a questionable approach. Also, Spring (like all frameworks I'm familiar with) has no facilities for this; why would it, given the existence java.util.zip?
As was already stated Spring does not have any libraries I know of for this. However if you have some sort of issue with using java.util.zip I have used the http://commons.apache.org/compress/ libraries before and they did a fine job as well.
