The JarEntry and ZipEntry treat non ASCII symbols different.
See for details
(unfortunatly it is the only plase I found it explained).

re:Getting from File to FileInputStream is easy and no reason to add
compression algorithms to IO.

I want to compress file (or dir). I get file on input and file(or byte[]) on
output. I can't understand why it should't be placed to IO.
If you look throw the code it works with IO packeges most of the time.
Also I don't think it was good idea to seporate compress from IO. ;-)

to me it is same as example with PrintWriter

what aproach do you prefer
this one
FileWriter fout = new FileWriter("fred.txt");
BufferedWriter bout = new BufferedWriter(fout);
PrintWriter pout = new PrintWriter(bout);
or that one
PrintWriter pout = new PrintWriter("fred.txt");

I prefer the second variant.
