Subject RE: 1.5.3?

It must be something specific to WinZIP.  My 1.5.2 jars/wars/zip all
deploy fine, can be read with numerous zip reading programs, including
the built-in zip file support on Windows XP.  I don't even have winZIP
installed, but I would be happy to get it and test if necessary.

Zip-file readers that I know work:
cygwin unzip
Java JDK jar
Eclipse built-in jar file support
Windows XP Explorer compressed file

I think so.

As ubiquitous as Windows, I guess.  See what *I* don't have 8-)

Yes, but not by me.
