you can use GZIPInputStream and GZIPOutputStream like you would other in/out streams to read and write.

here's an example of how it's done in standard java link

which doesn't differ greatly from gZip reading of inputStream
Code:
StringBuffer rawResponse = new StringBuffer();
InputStream inputStream = //some input stream
	GZIPInputStream gzipInputStream = new GZIPInputStream(inputStream);
				while (-1 != (length = gzipInputStream.read(responseData))) {
					rawResponse.append(new String(responseData, 0, length));
				
				}
