The Zip File Data Format is a message compression and de-compression format. Messages can be marshalled (compressed) to Zip files containing a single entry, and Zip files containing a single entry can be unmarshalled (decompressed) to the original file contents.

Since Camel 2.12.3 there is also a aggregation strategy that can aggregate multiple messages into a single Zip file.
In this example we marshal a regular text/XML payload to a compressed payload using Zip file compression, and send it to an ActiveMQ queue called MY_QUEUE.
The name of the Zip entry inside the created Zip file is based on the incoming
If there is no incoming
This route would result in a Zip file named "report.txt.zip" in the output directory, containing a single Zip entry named "report.txt".
In this example we unmarshal a Zip file payload from an ActiveMQ queue called MY_QUEUE to its original format, and forward it for processing to the
If the zip file has more then one entry, the usingIterator option of ZipFileDataFormat to be true, and you can use splitter to do the further work.
Or you can use the ZipSplitter as an expression for splitter directly like this

Please note that this aggregation strategy requires eager completion check to work properly.
In this example we aggregate all text files found in the input directory into a single Zip file that is stored in the output directory.
To use Zip files in your camel routes you need to add a dependency on camel-zipfile which implements this data format.
If you use Maven you can just add the following to your
