Hello ,I am having problems when I zip files with non-latin characters UTF8 characters to be specific.

Any ideas how could I read the filenames encoded like UTF8.

I tried to tranform the string filename with getByted but didn't work.

Thank you in advance,
Klearchos

Hi pouli,

Which version of Java are you using? There have been lacking support in the past for utf8 encoded file names. You might want to have a look at the bug parade at java.sun.com.
The other option, if you both put the files in, and retrieve them, is to base64 encode the filenames.

Cheers!

I am using

java version "1.4.1_03"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.1_03-b02)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.1_03-b02, mixed mode)


Is there a way to bypass that bug ?
