Help: Problems unzipping Spring zip on WinXP?
I downloaded Spring 3.0.5 (with docs) here:
When I attempt to unzip it with the built it unzip utility on Windows XP (rightclick > extract all...), it chugs along and then says "Password needed" ... says "File 'testalternatepath' is password protected." Asks me to enter a password for that file.
I click 'skip file' and it chugs along very slowly and then asks for a password for other files ... "File 'js' is password protected" ... click 'skip file' ... "File 'PropertiesFactoryBeanTests-...' is password protected" ... click 'skip file' ... and so on.
This can't be right. Am I doing something wrong, or is there a problem with the zip, or a problem with Windows?

I did a "jar -xf <filename.zip>" and it appears to have unzipped fine.
I guess I'll blame Windows?

The (un)zip/compressed folders functionality in windows is flawed, it cannot handle zip files which contains a lot of small files and it has problems with long path names. So I suggest something like winzip or 7zip to unzip your files.
