public void setMethod(int method)

Sets the default compression method for subsequent entries.
This default will be used whenever the compression
method is not specified for an individual ZIP file entry,
and is initially set to DEFLATED.

Now looking at the implementation of Kaffes ZipOutputStream

(line 25)
private int method = STORED;

(line 202)
        if (ze.method == -1) {
		ze.method = method;

So it looks like this default is incorrect.

Kaffe after changing the default method.

% kaffe DefaultZipEntry

This also fixes Sun's jar program when running in default
(compressed) mode under Kaffe.
