Hi all,
i write a program that generates as output a set of images and pdf files.Actually i store these files in separate directories one for images and one for pdf files.i want know to archive these files in zip files so that i can later extract each file from the archive so i can view it to the user in adobe reader.the zip utility in java provide a facility to get InputStream to each entry in zip file but i want really is the actual file from the zip so i can view it in adobe reader.anyone can give me an idea how that can be performed.

I assume that what you wish to achieve is through the following process:
Output from first application:
  • Put all of the files in the two directories as entries into a single zip file.


  • Input back into the application at a later time:
  • Open the zip archive
  • Extract a particular entry with the specified name
  • Open this file in the appropriate native program (e.g. Acrobat reader)


  • If these stages are correct, I think I can help you, but I feel that your question needs a little clarification for a more succinct answer!
