I don't know if this is the best board for the question, but I am trying to do this from a servlet, so...

I am using ZipOutputStream to create zip file containing 3 files on our server. I don't want to files to be inside directories when they are zipped, so how do I add them without the path information?



The 3 filenames all include the full server path to the file and they are getting added to the archive inside a directory structure that matches the server path.

TIA.

Thanks! I was able to get it working with the following changes:



The ZipEntry is what controls how it is represented in the zip file.
