Has anyone worked with the util.zip package? I´m trying to compress with it some images that I have in a int which I obtain after using PixelGrabber.

I have tried with classes Deflater and Inflater, but with a very simple example they don't seem to work properly.

Any example would be very helpful

Thanks in advance

The easiest way to use the compression that comes with Java is to use the classes:

GZIPInputStream, GZIPOutputStream, ZipInputStream, ZipOutputStream.

For example, let's say you're saving the image data to a file.  At some point in your code you've got something like this:

OutputStream out = new FileOutputStream( filename );

Replace it with the following:

OutputStream out = new ZipOutputSream(
                         new FileOutputStream( filename ) );

...and then you just use "out" as you normally would. (Wrapping it in a BufferedOutputStream, for example.)

This works analagously for InputStreams, as well as for streams other then FilexxxStream.
