Greetings, apologies in advance if this posting is inappropriate.

I am running Kaffe 0.91 on FreeBSD 2.2. It installed flawlessly, and I have
run serveral test programs without problem.

I am now trying out IBM's ServletExpress w/ Apache. The classes are in a
jar file. When trying to run the servlet, I get the following error: cannot handle compressed entry in JAR/ZIP file

If I try and look at the ServletExpress/lib/classes.jar file using 'jar'
which comes with Kaffe, I get the following error:

Failed to locate native function:
        at java/util/zip/ZipInputStream.<init>(53)
        at sun/tools/jar/Main.extract(371)
        at sun/tools/jar/
        at sun/tools/jar/Main.main(524)

Is this native method not implemented, or is there a problem with my

Thanks in advance for your help.
