Swing app, jarbundler ant task and file paths

Hi all,

I've just been knocking up little application in eclipse and I'm messing about with the jarbundler ant to build a .app application bundle. When I've been writing and running the application in eclipse I've been using log4j to write out a logfile and some standard io code to load a properties file via an argument on the command line. However, I'd like log4j to write its logfile inside the application bundle and I'd like to load the properties file in from inside the bundle, and I'm not sure how to reference files within the bundle. Do I just treat it like the folder it is behind the scenes?
