Unzip a ZIP File

     

How to unzip (extract) a zip file? How to retrieve elements from a zip format file? All these type of questions are solved through the following example. This program shows you how to extract files from a zip file in which many different files are stored in compressed format and make a single zip file.

There are various type methods and APIs are explained as follows which are used in the following program to retrieve all the compressed elements from the zip file.

ZipEntry:
This is the class of java.util.zip.*; package of Java which is used to zip file entries.

ZipFile.entries():
Above method of the ZipFile class gets the files entries of the zip file format.

Enumeration.hasMoreElement():
This method checks whether more element elements are present or not for the zip file which are enumerated.

Enumeration.nextElement():
This method gives you the next elements from the list of the files, which are compressed and stored in the zip file.

Here is the code of the program:

import java.util.*;
import java.util.zip.*;
import java.io.*;

public class ZipRetrieveElements{
  public static void main(String[] args){
  ZipRetrieveElements zr = new ZipRetrieveElements();
  }

  public ZipRetrieveElements() {
  OutputStream out = null;
  BufferedReader bf = 
  new 
BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
  try {
  System.out.print("Eneter zip file name to unzip: ");
  String sourcefile = bf.readLine();
  if(!sourcefile.endsWith(".zip")){
  System.out.println("Invalid file name!");
  System.exit(0);
  }
  else if(!new File(sourcefile).exists()){
  System.out.println("File not exist!");
  System.exit(0);
  }

  ZipInputStream in = 
 
new ZipInputStream(new FileInputStream(sourcefile));
  ZipFile zf = new ZipFile(sourcefile);
  int a = 0;
  for(Enumeration em = zf.entries(); em.hasMoreElements();){
  String targetfile = em.nextElement().toString();
  ZipEntry ze = in.getNextEntry();
  out = new FileOutputStream(targetfile);
  byte[] buf = new byte[1024];
  int len;
  while ((len = in.read(buf)) 0) {
  out.write(buf, 0, len);
  }
  a = a + 1;
  }
  if(a > 0System.out.println("Files unzipped.");
  out.close();
  in.close();
  catch (IOException e) {
  System.out.println("Error: Operation failed!");
  System.exit(0);
  }
  }
}
