Hi, Whenever I access a resource (html files and images) in my code, I use this.getClass().getResource("filename"). I did not put any relative/absolute paths. But my help/user manual files are online. They are html. They include the following <img src="welcome.jpg"/><BR> Will I be in trouble because the app will find the html file but not the image embedded in it? Should I play it safe and get rid of the image files for screen shots? Thanks, Aruna.
I used relative paths, and used the "user.dir" property to access the HTML page, and in the main directory there was an images subdirectory that I used for the images and relative path, it worked fine. Mark
I packaged the whole caboodle in my jar -- yes, that included my online HTML manual and all the images used by the HTML. Works like a dream. Way to go, IMHO -- no file clutter, no dependency on locations or properties. Remember, Java can turn jar resources into a URL (Class.getResource()/ClassLoader.getResource()) using some magic syntax with the jar pseudo-protocol. That works just fine with the Swing editor widget thingie. All I did wasHTH - Peter [ January 16, 2003: Message edited by: Peter den Haan ]
