How to add files to an existing zip file?

I need to add files to an already existing zip file, here's what I have so far, this searches for files of a certain ext and zips them up.

I would like to maybe pass in a file name, and add that to an already existing zip file.

I have no idea where to start.

help.

thanks.

You'll need to make a new archive, add all, then delete and rename if necessary

You mean make a new archive, unzip the old one, THEN add all?

There's not a way I can just add one file to an archive already there?

This sounds like alot of work.

Yes.

You might find that using Ant programatically makes things a bit easier

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

So then that means I'll need to delete the original archive first, then rename the new archive the old name?

Or would it be better to create a temp directory, do the work there, and then trash the whole directory?

If you don't mind the same file name in a different directory, then yes
