Now that I have my application successfully broken out into packages, I have run into a small problem. Before, when I had all my classes in the same directory and no packages, I also had in this directory a .properties file. Only on eclass needs access to this file, so when I created my packages I moved this file to the same package directory as the object that needs it. When I try to run my application, I get an error saying that the file could not be found. What is the trick to proper file placement? I do not want to hard-code the address... TIA
Wait a minute, I'm trying to think of something clever to say...<p>Joel
Thanks for the idea Dirk, it made me try what actually worked... I had to move it to the directory just above my package root (unless that is what you meant...) Example: java GUI class installed in C:\CAMRA2 my package structure is C:\CAMRA2\com\massappraisal\myPackages I had to put the file in C:\CAMRA2, but it worked. Thanks again,

That is what I meant, and I'm glad it works, because it makes sense that it could.
