This is a slightly educated guess, but try replacing the line:
Also, make sure your jar file is in the classpath and that inside of the jar file, the file icons/connect16.gif really exists. I had problems getting images out of a jar file a while back and the slash at the beginning (just before icons) did the trick for me. Let me know how it goes... Randy
That pretty much sums it up Nathan. That pretty much scroggs either me using jdk 1.4 or from storing images in my jar file. I am not going to parse my URL the way they suggest. Seems like too much overhead. I think I will just store the images externally. Thanks for your reply Nathan. You always have the answers.
