I think this is the Windows command-line executable for WinZip, and it's probably being used against a mapped network drive to the IFS. (or network locator name - \\iseries\share\*.*). This will have pretty bad performance, as everything handled by WZZIP had to be downloaded as it is being compressed. JAR is not all that fast either, but it does the job nicely. Better than the gzip utility available from IBM for QShell. Allows for larger objects, too. And multiple objects into a single archive.

I use the JAR utility in QShell, which comes with OS/400  (you need to
install both Java and QShell...)

I didn't even know that WinZip made software for the iSeries?!
