Hi,
I'm not using Eclipse Modeler. I need to create BAR files though. I've seen a post at this link:

Here trademak says:

A BAR file is just a ZIP file containing the process definition file and optionally some other files.
So just create a ZIP file with these files and you're fine.

Best regards,

Does that mean creating a zip file using some arbitrary program gives the same result? I've created a zip file, changed extension from zip to bar. But It yields an error with a code like that:


ByteArrayInputStream inputStream = new ByteArrayInputStream(uploadReceiver.getBuffer().toByteArray());
ZipInputStream zipInputStream = new ZipInputStream(inputStream);
repositoryService.createDeployment().name(fileName).addZipInputStream(zipInputStream).deploy();

Exception is:


Caused by: org.activiti.engine.ActivitiException: problem reading zip input stream
