what i need is to be able to include my data files and pictures with my jar files. But when i include them into the jar, it will load the pics/data files when the jar is in same directory, but not when it is in another location.
i've heard to use classloader, but i do not know how to use it.
ok when i create the jar file, I put the files that are in the folder with it. Now if i try to move that jar file to desktop, when i run it, the images and datafiles wont be included in the jar. the jar will only use the images/data files if its in the same directory that i initially created that jar file in.

I see. Well, the getResourceAsStream approach allows you to keep those files in the jar, so the problem can't occur.

so the parameter to the function would be the String filename of the file i want to keep in the jar?
