import java.io.FileOutputStream;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.nio.file.*;
import java.nio.file.attribute.BasicFileAttributes;
import java.util.zip.ZipEntry;
import java.util.zip.ZipOutputStream;

public class ZipCompress {
    public static void compress(String dirPath) {
        final Path sourceDir = Paths.get(dirPath);
        String zipFileName = dirPath.concat(".zip");
        try {
            final ZipOutputStream outputStream = new ZipOutputStream(new FileOutputStream(zipFileName));
            Files.walkFileTree(sourceDir, new SimpleFileVisitor<Path>() {
                @Override
                public FileVisitResult visitFile(Path file, BasicFileAttributes attributes) {
                    try {
