Mail Adapter ZIP File Attachment



I have created an interface using the mail receiver to mail a file as an attachment to an email address. I have used an ABAP mapping to create the Mail message associating the required content of Mail message. This all works fine and the emails with the required attachments are delivered successfully.

I now need the ability to ZIP the file attachments. I have had a look through some of the forum messages and it looks like I am going to have to create a java module for the receiver mail adapter to ZIP the file.

Has anyone done this before? If so can you give me some pointers. I have developed modules for the file adapter but am not sure how to ZIP.

Alternatively can this be done as part of the ABAP mapping. I have started looking at class CL_ABAP_ZIP. I am now able to compress the content but this does not create a valid archive as the attachment.

Any help would be much appreciated.
