The getSize() function is a part of java.util.zip package. The function returns the uncompressed Size of a specific ZipEntry passed as parameter or -1 if not known.
Function Signature :

public long getSize()

Syntax :

zip_entry.getSize();

Parameters :No parameter is required for this function.
Return value :The function returns a long value, the uncompressed Size of this ZipEntry.
Exceptions :The function does not throw any exception.

Below programs illustrates the use of getSize() function

Example 1: We will create a file named zip_file and get the zip file entry using getEntry() function and then get the uncompressed Size of the specified ZipEntry.”file.zip” is a zip file present in f: directory. we will take a “.zip” file as ZipEntry




// Java program to demonstrate the
// use of getSize() function
  
import java.util.zip.*;
import java.util.Enumeration;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
  
public class solution {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        try {
            // Create a Zip File
            ZipFile zip_file = new ZipFile("f:\\file1.zip");
  
            // get the Zip Entry using
            // the getEntry() function
            ZipEntry entry = zip_file.getEntry("file.zip");
  
            // Get the uncompressed Size
            // using the getSize()
            // function
            long input = entry.getSize();
  
            // Display the uncompressed Size
            System.out.println("uncompressed Size : " + input);
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e.getMessage());
        }
    }
}


Output:

uncompressed Size : 2153

Example 2: We will create a file named zip_file and get the zip file entry using getEntry() function and then get the uncompressed Size of the specified ZipEntry.”file.zip” is a zip file present in f: directory. we will take a “.cpp” file as ZipEntry




// Java program to demonstrate the
// use of getSize() function
  
import java.util.zip.*;
import java.util.Enumeration;
import java.util.*;
import java.io.*;
  
public class solution {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        try {
            // Create a Zip File
            ZipFile zip_file = new ZipFile("f:\\file1.zip");
  
            // get the Zip Entry using
            // the getEntry() function
            ZipEntry entry = zip_file.getEntry("file1.cpp");
  
            // Get the uncompressed Size
            // using the getSize()
            // function
            long input = entry.getSize();
  
            // Display the uncompressed Size
            System.out.println("uncompressed Size : " + input);
        }
        catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println(e.getMessage());
        }
    }
}


Output:

uncompressed Size : 783
