Eclipse JAR Problem

Hey Guys,

I got a problem with creating a Executable JAR in Eclipse.
My application uses images and when I try to run the JAR that Eclipse creates it doesn't find the image files.
I keep my images in a separate folder called images along with the src folder and others in the project.
It detects them fine when I run it in Eclipse.
The way I access the images in my Java code is like this:

I have also tried this way:

And neither way works.
I was hoping if anyone can help me, Thanks.

getClass().getResource() is the correct way to access jarred resources.
However you need to supply the name of the resource.
How do you expect blank quotes to work?
