Subject Re: [VFS] Compress Support Added?
Date Sat, 10 Feb 2007 17:13:50 GMT
Thanks Jörg,
I got the code and tried to use it but I got an error indicating that  
multiple providers had been registered for the zip file.

I found the thread where they talked about Compress support in November  

I looked at the code and the unit test for it, and although the unit  
test allowed you to deal with nested zip files, it did not deal with  
the basic task of creating a zip file and writing files into it.

I've tried FileObject.createFile() to create the zip file and then  
tried to FileSystemManager.addJunction().  But neither of those  
approaches seemed to work.

Does anyone know of the appropriate way to create the zip file, and add  
child files.
