My name is Ryan Greenwood which is a reserved log in by someone else. All other names attempted were met with the same message so I opted for a unique mail address.
Thanks for the note on the Jar file. I understand this is the prescribed way to package resources however the question is how do I specify the resources location such as "package/package/xxxxx.jar'. While developing it presumably is not necessary to package everything. I have placed the files in the res directory, in the class directory of my project amongst others, yet they remain unfound as InputStream is assigned null value.

You do not need to change your login name. You just need to change your "display name" (or "screen name", or "nick name") so that it displays properly in your post. Thanks.
In order to access the resource files, you have to build the JAR file first. Some IDE tools might build the JAR automatically for you so you do not see it. In this case, you need to find out what your tool does behind the scene and what resource directory it choose to bundle into the JAR.
