Hi,
I'm trying to zip a single file using the ZipOutputStream. The code runs fine and produces a file, however I cannot unzip the file with either PKZip or WinZip (I get a "file does not appear to be a valid archive" error.).
Here is the code segment I've written (where src and dest are File objects passed in to the method). I apologize for the formatting

You probably need to close() the ZipOutputStream.

I am embarassed and chagrined, but grateful that it was something that easy/stupid.
Thanks for your help, everything works great now!
