Dependecies in JAR file

I try to build my application as a JAR file. The problem is that as I read XML files, the program uses the relevant DTD files from the local folder when executed from within Eclipse, but searches for the DTD in home\user\ when executed as a JAR from anywhere else.
Can I somehow change that, to have the DTDs just in the same folder with the JAR, no matter from where I run the program?

Thank you in advance

I guess one option would be to -- get the classpath, find the jar file, and extract the location of the file. Not simple, but doable.
