VB.net & Java

Last Modified: 2012-06-27

i have 'inheritated' VB.Net code from somebody who left the company. The code imports java classes but on my system it can not find these classes and I have no clue where to look for the classes/dll's/...

It looks like this

Imports java.util.zip
Imports java.io

Public Class Zip

    Public Shared Function CreateZip(ByVal FileNames() As String, ByVal ZipFileName As String) As Boolean

               If DoesFileExist(ZipFileName) Then
            Throw New IOException("zip file already exists")
            Return False
        End If

The problem start at

Imports java.util.zip
Imports java.io

I want to add a reference but I do not know what to add.
On my system I have the JDK1.6.0_25 as well as JRE6.
