Description Ian 2012-05-12 15:53:10 UTC
It appears that the Zip libraries found in Java.Util are not ported.

For example, this Android code is not possible:

Perhaps we should add the WindowsBase assemblies to MonoTouch and MonoDroid.
Comment 2 Jonathan Pryor 2012-05-21 12:03:14 UTC
The Java.Util.Zip package is added in commit a925febf. We'll need to explore a cross-platform .zip mechanism in the future.
