Class Overview

Used to read (decompress) the data from zip files.

A zip file (or "archive") is a collection of (possibly) compressed files. When reading from a ZipInputStream, you call getNextEntry() which returns a ZipEntry of metadata corresponding to the userdata that follows. When you appear to have hit the end of this stream (which is really just the end of the current entry's userdata), call getNextEntry again. When it returns null, there are no more entries in the input file.

Although InflaterInputStream can only read compressed zip entries, this class can read non-compressed entries as well.

Use ZipFile if you need random access to entries by name, but use this class if you just want to iterate over all entries.

Example

Using ZipInputStream is a little more complicated than GZIPInputStream because zip files are containers that can contain multiple files. This code pulls all the files out of a zip file, similar to the unzip(1) utility.

 InputStream is = ...
 ZipInputStream zis = new ZipInputStream(new BufferedInputStream(is));
 try {
     ZipEntry ze;
     while ((ze = zis.getNextEntry()) != null) {
         ByteArrayOutputStream baos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
         byte[] buffer = new byte[1024];
         int count;
         while ((count = zis.read(buffer)) != -1) {
             baos.write(buffer, 0, count);
         }
         String filename = ze.getName();
         byte[] bytes = baos.toByteArray();
         // do something with 'filename' and 'bytes'...
     }
 } finally {
     zis.close();
 }

Public Constructors

public ZipInputStream (InputStream stream)

Added in API level 1

Constructs a new ZipInputStream to read zip entries from the given input stream.

Public Methods

public int available ()

Added in API level 1

Returns 0 when when this stream has exhausted its input; and 1 otherwise. A result of 1 does not guarantee that further bytes can be returned, with or without blocking.

Although consistent with the RI, this behavior is inconsistent with available(), and violates the Liskov Substitution Principle. This method should not be used.

Returns
  • 0 if no further bytes are available. Otherwise returns 1, which suggests (but does not guarantee) that additional bytes are available.
Throws
IOException

public void close ()

Added in API level 1

Closes this ZipInputStream.

Throws
IOException if an IOException occurs.

public void closeEntry ()

Added in API level 1

Closes the current zip entry and prepares to read the next entry.

Throws
IOException if an IOException occurs.

public ZipEntry getNextEntry ()

Added in API level 1

Returns the next entry from this ZipInputStream or null if no more entries are present.

Throws
IOException if an IOException occurs.

public int read (byte[] buffer, int byteOffset, int byteCount)

Added in API level 1

Reads up to byteCount uncompressed bytes into the buffer starting at byteOffset. Returns the number of bytes actually read, or -1.

Throws
IOException

Protected Methods

protected ZipEntry createZipEntry (String name)

Added in API level 1

creates a ZipEntry with the given name.

Parameters
name the name of the entry.
Returns
  • the created ZipEntry.
