Update ZIP and JAR files incrementally over HTTP transferring only the data that has changed in compressed form. Does not require any pre- or on-the-fly compression or any application/code running server-side except a HTTP 1.1-compliant web server and an index file created at time of deployment.

JZIPUpdate 0.9 is now available and fixes a serious parsing bug. Please update to release 0.9, especially if you get an exception labelled Found CR in line but not followed by LF.
The latest files for Java 1.4 and 1.5 are always available from the SourceForge project page.

Thanks for using JZIPUpdate and sorry for the inconvenience :)


Download JZIPUpdate

You can download the latest JZIPUpdate release from the SourceForge project page.

Please remember to also download RetroWeaver if you want to use the 1.4-compatible JZIPUpdate binaries. You only need to have retroweaver-rt.jar on your classpath along with the "retroweaved" JZIPUpdate JAR.
