    How to zip a file?

    Eduardo Schurtz
      Hi folks...

      I need to zip a file from Oracle Forms 6i (Oracle EBS or a PL/SQL object to send it by e-mail.

      I did a search and the only solution that I found was using Java:

      *1) Create a java file like:*

      import java.util.zip.*;
      import java.io.*;

      public class zipfile
      public boolean addFile(String filename,String outFilename)
      try {
      int len;

      ZipOutputStream out = new ZipOutputStream(new FileOutputStream(outFilename));
      FileInputStream in = new FileInputStream(filename);
      // Add ZIP entry to output stream.
      out.putNextEntry(new ZipEntry(filename));
      byte[] buf = new byte[1024];
      while ((len = in.read(buf)) > 0)
      out.write(buf, 0, len);
      return true;

      } catch (IOException e)
      return false;


      *2) Compile this file and import it at Oracle forms using Import Java Classes. But when I try to import this file I get the following error:*

      Importing Class Zipfile...
      Exception occurred: java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: Zipfile (Unsupported major.minor version 50.0)

      What can be? Other Ideas to zip a file using Forms or PL/SQL?
