Hi all

I want to put icons somewhere in a beginner project, so as to call:
Icon icon = new ImageIcon("myIcon.gif");
(or some variant with a path specified), and bung it onto a JLabel etc.

In the src folder of the project I've got a gui package containing:

I've tried putting a test icon just about everywhere. Sometimes it shows up, but if so, when I fire up a shell, go to the dist folder that Netbeans creates, and try:
java -jar MyIconDemo.jar
no icons show.
