How can ColdFusion work with ZIP and JAR files?
Use the <cfzip> and the <cfzipparam> tags.
<cfzip> provides access to ZIP and JAR files with the following actions:
delete: Deletes one or more files from the file.
list: Lists the contents of the file.
read: Reads the contents of the file into a variable.
readBinary: Reads the contents of a binary archived file into a variable.
unzip: Extracts files from the ZIP or JAr file.
zip: Compress files into a ZIP or JAR file.
<cfzip file="c:/foo.jar" action="list" name="myVar"> <cfdump var="#myVar#">
Use the <cfzipparam> tag with the <cfzip> tag to zip, extract, or delete multiple files or directories. For example:
<!--- This example shows how to update a ZIP file with files from multiple locations, each with a different filter. ---> <cfzip file="c:\foo.jar" action="zip"> <cfzipparam source="c:\test1\file1.txt"> <cfzipparam source="c:\test2\test3" recurse="yes"> </cfzip>
