I am creating a executable jar MyJar for my application. I am facing some problems 1) My Application contains a properties file MyProperty.properties which contains a key value pair which reference a location of the file say CONFIG_FILE=/XML/Test.xml This MyProperty file and the Test.xml are also included in my jar file.
When I run the executable jar it cannot find the /XML/Test.xml as well as the jar files inside the MyJar.jar. I have included the xerces.jar in MyJar.jar. How should customize my program to find the files and jar How do I overcome this problem?.
How are you accessing the resources inside the jar file? Using the java.io package won't work. This article is a bit applet-centric, but it explains in details how to access files stored in the jar file, and that is applicable to applications as well.

This is also not the right thing to do. You should distribute xerces.jar along with MyJar.jar, not inside it, and you should have MyJar.jar's manifest file include a Class-Path entry that points to xerces.jar. If you haven't already seen it, this tutorial explains the process. [ May 10, 2006: Message edited by: Paul Clapham ]
