    I'm wondering if there is any way to rename a TPath.

    zip.renameTo(new File("test.txt"))'
    TPath is TrueZip by the way.

    What class is the zip variable? That is needed to be able to research the renameTo() method.

    Is a TPath file a normal file as far as OS commands like rename and delete are concerned? Its contents are not important to how the file is named, copied or deleted.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    TPath is a way to access zips as if they were directories.
    Most methods are the same but not the renameTo().
    Do you know the method?

    What class is the zip variable? It a member of that class. Look in the class's API doc.

    I have never heard of TPath.

    Sorry!
    I forgot to tell you that TPath is an external jar.
    Also, I don't know why you mean by what class is the zip variable.

    Also, I don't know why you mean by what class is the zip variable.
    Post the code where zip is defined.
    With the statement: String zip = "zip";
    zip's class would be String.

    TPath is an external jar.
    What does the name of a jar file have to do with the problem? It's the contents of jar file on the classpath that is important.
