Program: How to zip multiple files?


Description:

Below example shows how to zip multiple files using ZipOutputStream class. putNextEntry() method starts adding into the zip, and ZipEntry represents a file entry into the zip.


Code:
package com.java2novice.zip;

import java.io.BufferedOutputStream;
import java.io.File;
import java.io.FileInputStream;
import java.io.FileNotFoundException;
import java.io.FileOutputStream;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.List;
import java.util.zip.ZipEntry;
import java.util.zip.ZipOutputStream;

public class MyMultipleFileZip {

	public void zipFiles(List<String> files){
		
		FileOutputStream fos = null;
        ZipOutputStream zipOut = null;
        FileInputStream fis = null;
		try {
			fos = new FileOutputStream("C:/testing.zip");
			zipOut = new ZipOutputStream(new BufferedOutputStream(fos));
			for(String filePath:files){
				File input = new File(filePath);
				fis = new FileInputStream(input);
				ZipEntry ze = new ZipEntry(input.getName());
				System.out.println("Zipping the file: "+input.getName());
				zipOut.putNextEntry(ze);
				byte[] tmp = new byte[4*1024];
				int size = 0;
				while((size = fis.read(tmp)) != -1){
					zipOut.write(tmp, 0, size);
				}
				zipOut.flush();
				fis.close();
			}
			zipOut.close();
			System.out.println("Done... Zipped the files...");
		} catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
			// TODO Auto-generated catch block
			e.printStackTrace();
		} catch (IOException e) {
			// TODO Auto-generated catch block
			e.printStackTrace();
		} finally{
			try{
				if(fos != null) fos.close();
			} catch(Exception ex){
				
			}
		}
	}
	
	public static void main(String a[]){
		
		MyMultipleFileZip mfe = new MyMultipleFileZip();
		List<String> files = new ArrayList<String>();
		files.add("C:/test.txt");
		files.add("C:/test.sh");
		files.add("C:/port-chn.txt");
		mfe.zipFiles(files);
	}
}


Output:
Zipping the file: test.txt
Zipping the file: test.sh
Zipping the file: port-chn.txt
Done... Zipped the files...

Where can we use serialization?
Whenever an object has to sent over the network, those objects should be serialized. Also if the state of an object is to be saved, objects need to be serilazed.
