I've a group of files and I'm trying to zip them all in a zip file using ZipOutputStream and ZipEntry classes. Everything is ok but I've a problem with arabic file names. When any of my files is named in arabic, it is put inside the zip file succesffully but the name is corrupted. I tried encoding the file name before I put it in the ZipEntry collection but I get the same problem.
Any ides regarding encoding ZipOutputStream? or any other API that I can use to handle this issue?
Very interesting. It looks like this has been a longstanding problem, and not just with Arabic, but any non-ASCII file names. There seems to be a fix for it in Java 7. If you can't use Java 7 (which is still in beta I think), you might have to find another workaround.
I just had the craziest dream. This tiny ad was in it.
