This method takes 3 args - name of zip file to be created, full directory path, names of the files in specified directory to be zipped.

You can modify this to just pass the first two args and zip ALL files in the specified directory.

After the zip is made you can attach it in your email with javamail

private void zip(String a_strZipFile, String a_strDir, String[] a_fileNames) throws FileNotFoundException, IOException
ZipOutputStream zout = new ZipOutputStream( new FileOutputStream(new File(a_strZipFile)) );
byte[] buf = new byte [1024];

for (int i = 0; i < a_fileNames.length; i++)
ZipEntry zipEntry = new ZipEntry(a_fileNames[i]);

File aFile = new File(a_strDir, a_fileNames[i]);
FileInputStream in = new FileInputStream(aFile);

int bytesRead = in.read(buf, 0, 1024);
while (bytesRead != -1)
zout.write(buf, 0, bytesRead);
bytesRead = in.read(buf, 0, 1024);
