            System.out.println("Entries:");
  
            // iterate through all the entries
            while (entries.hasMoreElements()) {
                // get the zip entry
                ZipEntry entry = entries.nextElement();
  
                // display the entry
                System.out.println(entry.getName());
            }
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
