Does anyone know how to unzip an Mac aplication in Java?

I used the ZipFile method, it unzipped a file fine, but the result directory's structure and size are diffrent than the originals. The worst part is that the unzipped application is not recognized as a Mac application anymoe. As we all know, Mac application is indeed a collection of files inside a .app folder, but my question is how to retain the original application inside a zip file.

Can anyone explain to me why the Mac applications are not executable anymore and file sized changed after all the decompression using tar and zip?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
