Hello All, I hope this is the right forum to post this message.

I am trying to use the ResourceBundle class to get a properties file

my code looks like this

its command line invocation.

The properties file is in the same directory as this file.

I am using Eclipse IDE.

It is giving me this error

Exception in thread "main" java.util.MissingResourceException: Can't find bundle for base name example_export, locale en_US

example_export is the properties file.

Please let me know what I am missing.

Eclipse is probably putting your class file in a different directory. For this to work the resource bundle needs to be in the same directory as the class, not the source (.java) file. I would try running it from the command prompt. Do a dir (I'm assuming you're using Windows) in the directory to verify that the class and the resource bundle are both present.
I agree. Here's the link:
