Resources from a JAR file for w/s

I made an executable jar for my application and I'm having trouble with this,

C:\>java -jar jed.jar
Exception in thread "main" java.util.MissingResourceException: Can't find bundle for base name jedit, locale en_US
at java.util.ResourceBundle.throwMissingResourceException(Unknown Source
at java.util.ResourceBundle.getBundleImpl(Unknown Source)
at java.util.ResourceBundle.getBundle(Unknown Source)
at edu.bsu.cs.gui.JeditResources.<init>(
at edu.bsu.cs.gui.JeditControls.<init>(
at edu.bsu.cs.gui.JeditFrame.<init>(
at JEdit.main(

My app reads all the resources from a .properties file and all the image resources for icons are in my classes older that I included in the jar. How do I fix this?

What code are you using to load the resource bundles?
