I'm looking for a simple example of compressing a serializable object using the GZIPInputStream and GZIPOutputStream classes in java.util.zip package.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

to write:

FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream(filename);
GZIPOutputStream gzos = new GZIPOutputStream(fos);    
ObjectOutputStream out = new ObjectOutputStream(gzos);
out.writeObject(new String("test string"));

to read:

FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(filename);
GZIPInputStream gzis = new GZIPInputStream(fis);
ObjectInputStream in = new ObjectInputStream(gzis);
String test = (Vector)in.readObject();  // this depends on what you want to write

don't forget to add the exception handling

cheers,

ObjectOutputStream oos = new ObjectOutputStream(new GZIPOutputStream(new FileOutputStream(myFile)));
oos.writeObject(mySerializableObject);

ObjectInputStream ois = new ObjectInputStream(new GZIPInputStream(new FileInputStream(myFile)));
Object deserialized = ois.readObject();

// Serialize & Zip
{
  MyObject myobj = new MyObject();
  FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream("data.dat");
  GZIPOutputStream gos = new GZIPOutputStream(fos);
  ObjectOutputStream oos = new ObjectOutputStream(gos);
  oos.writeObject(myobj);
}
// Unzip & De-serialize
{
  MyObject myobj = null;
  FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream("data.dat");
  GZIPInputStream gis = new GZIPInputStream(fis);
  ObjectInputStream ois = new ObjectInputStream(gis);
  myobj = (MyObject) ois.readObject();  
}
