Unzipping a zipfile on the SD card Using Zipme

Hi,

 

I am working on a project that will parse a file that is stored within a zipfile on a SD Card.

 

From searching the forums, I have found the suggestion of using the GNU zip library at  http://zipme.sourceforge.net/.

 

I was wondering if anyone had done this before or had any examples of how you would go about this.

 

Thanks

Why don't you just use one of the ZIP input stream classes that already ship with the device?

 

See GZIPInputStream in the API docs.

Thanks for replying so quickly.

 

I checked the API and I thought GZIPInputStream would just unzip files that were zipped using gzip.  The file that I need to deal with is zipped with zip and has many files embedded within the one zip files.

 

Is it still possible to use GZIPInputStream?  Do you have any other recommendations?

 

Thanks,

Jeff

Sorry, thought you were looking for GZIP.

 

Unfortunately, RIM doesn't provide the ZIP libraries as in Java SE.

 

Looks like you'll need to bring in a 3rd-party library.

Re: Unzipping a zipfile on the SD card Using Zipme

I am searching for 3rd party libraries for unzipping files..can anyone suggest any such libraries? Also, I'd really appreciate it if anyone could provide me with links to these libraries, unless of course, they're easy to find by their name through google Man Happy

 

Thanks.
