If I have a file in a directory that is in my classpath; why am I not finding the file with
ResourceBundle rb = ResourceBundle.getBundle("myfile");
? I get a MissingResourceException

Is it possible that an application can change the classpath while running?

Only, I think, by instantiating your own classloader and using that.
