i'm trying to zipp .txt files from a folder but i want to know how to select only .txt file. I try my code but it's not working, could any one help me please.

[CODE] here is the code: import java.util.*; import*; import*;

public class ZipFile { public static void main(String[] args) {

ZipOutputStream out = null;
InputStream in = null;
try {
    File inputFile1 = new File("c:\\Target\\target.txt");// here i want to say only the directroy where .txt files are stored
    File outputFile = new File("c:\\Target\\");//here i want to put zipped file in a different directory

File Dir = new File("c:/Target"); FilenameFilter filter = new FilenameFilter() { public boolean accept(File dir, String name) { return !name.startsWith(".txt"); } }; String[] children = Dir.list(filter);

    OutputStream rawOut = new BufferedOutputStream(new FileOutputStream(outputFile));
    out = new ZipOutputStream(rawOut);

    InputStream rawIn = new FileInputStream(inputFile1);
    in = new BufferedInputStream(rawIn);

    ZipEntry entry = new ZipEntry("c:\\Target\\target.txt");
    byte[] buf = new byte[2048];
    int len;
    while ((len = > 0) {
        out.write(buf, 0, len);
catch(IOException e) {
finally {
    try {
        if(in != null) {
        if(out != null) {
    catch(IOException ignored)
            { }

} [/CODE]

Thank you

Java create zip file

class OnlyExt implements FilenameFilter{
  String ext;
  public OnlyExt(String ext){
  this.ext="." + ext;
  public boolean accept(File dir,String name){
  return name.endsWith(ext);
public class CreateZip{
public static int buffer = 10240;
protected void create(File exefile, File[] listFiles){
byte b[] = new byte[buffer];
FileOutputStream fout = new FileOutputStream(exefile);
ZipOutputStream out = new ZipOutputStream(fout);
for(int i = 0; i < listFiles.length; i++){
if(listFiles[i] == null || !listFiles[i].exists()|| listFiles[i].isDirectory())
System.out.println("Adding " + listFiles[i].getName());
ZipEntry addFiles = new ZipEntry(listFiles[i].getName());

FileInputStream fin = new FileInputStream(listFiles[i]);
int len =, 0, b.length);
if(len <= 0)
out.write(b, 0, len);
System.out.println("Zip File is created successfully.");
catch (Exception ex){}
public static void main(String[]args){
CreateZip exe=new CreateZip();
FilenameFilter ff = new OnlyExt("txt");
File folder = new File("c:/");
File[] files = folder.listFiles(ff);
File file=new File("C:/");
exe.create(file, files);
