I am trying to find a solution which allow the user to download the zip file on the Playbook and then use that. I am basically Java programmer and i didn't find any such kind of API with current Adobe Air based SDK.
Kindly let me know if there is any API.

Which aspect do you need help with?
Downloading the file?
Or possibly modifying it (you don't say if that's required).
Searching for "actionscript zip" and similar should give you answers to some of that.

The OS would need to have unzip installed which is probably does since it is Unix. You would need to manage this from within an application (AIR for now). There are zip libraries for AIR too.
Dont know what happens if the browser pointed to a zip file. Browser would need to have some kind of unpack extension.

You can use the standard URLLoader and URLRequest calls to obtain remote data. From there, you can use the File classes to serialize to disk. These have nothing to do with a "zip" file, they are used for any data blobs on remote server. Once in the file, you can use calls to manage the contents of the zip file.

All the tools/API can be found here:
I personally dont have an example on hand. It is probably a dozen lines of code to do this. Do searches on "Adobe Flex URLLoader" to grab the file and do searches on "Adobe AIR File" to store the file. If you get stuck on that, please post a specific question.

The Playbook sdk i had was an earlier version so i suppose there was some issues with the filedownload url with secure connections. I am not sure about it.. So i downloads the new sdk and try to install it but fail to install it.
I am facing to install the Playbook sdk (BlackBerryTabletSDK-Air-Installer-0.9.3-Win-20110
When i run it, the Install Anywhere screen comes and asks..
Please select any other location to extract the installer to:
when i choose any location it won't accept and ask to choose again & again.
Kindly do the needful.
