If you need info on how to zip files, then do take a look at the java.util.zip pacakage.

On another note, this really isn't struts related.

In Action class:
1. Using File class, read the each file
2. Using ZipOutputStream Java API, zip them.
3. Send the resulted zip file stream to the response output OR save the resulted zip file on server and then simply give link to that file.
