    Help needed for "java.io.IOException: Not in GZIP format"

      Hi Everyone,

      I am facing some issues with GZIPInputStream. I am trying to connect a FileInputStream thru it, but some weird exception is coming my way... Posting the code below,
      import java.io.FileInputStream;
      import java.util.zip.GZIPInputStream;
      public class GZipTester {
           public static void main(String args[])
                String file = "C://Testing.tar.gz";
                GZIPInputStream gzip = new GZIPInputStream(new FileInputStream(file));
                      catch(Exception e)
      The tar.gz file exists at it's place, so no issue with that. When I try to run this, I get a big exception,
      java.io.IOException: Not in GZIP format
           at java.util.zip.GZIPInputStream.readHeader(GZIPInputStream.java:131)
           at java.util.zip.GZIPInputStream.<init>(GZIPInputStream.java:58)
           at java.util.zip.GZIPInputStream.<init>(GZIPInputStream.java:68)
           at GZipTester.main(GZipTester.java:10)
      Can someone please help me out in this? I have spent almost all my day digging into this issue. But no success.

      Any help would be appreciated!

      Thanks much,
