Don't think this is a beginner's topic. Moving.

The issue will be the names for the ZIP entries, and recursion comes to the rescue:

This method will take the original name (e.g. javaLog), and all of its files will keep that name part (e.g. javaLog/image.jpg, javaLog/folder/document.txt, etc).

I omitted the actual zipping part, but I don't think that will be a problem.

the two log folders are in different location.


Here i am getting the zip file .if i extract i am getting inFolder\\java . thats is second path is overridding the first one. i want both folder in one zip .


Note: under the inFolder there are many logfolder. i need only two of them(in some situation). so i reject to zip the parent folder(inFolder)
