The problem I am having is that I am trying to unzip a .zip file and read the first file. This works fine when the .zip file contains text files but when it contains .gif the file extracts but when I try to view it, it cannot be read. Please Help!! Thank you david.
Below is the code I have so far....
public void extractFirstFile()
{
try {
// Open the ZIP file
String inFilename = fileName;
ZipInputStream in = new ZipInputStream(new FileInputStream(fileName));
// Get the first entry
ZipEntry entry = in.getNextEntry();
// Open the output file
String outFilename = "uladulla 007.jpg";
OutputStream out = new FileOutputStream(outFilename);
// Transfer bytes from the ZIP file to the output file
byte[] buf = new byte[1024];
int len;
while ((len = in.read(buf)) > 0) {
out.write(buf, 0, len);
}
// Close the streams
out.close();
in.close();
} catch (IOException e) {
}
