Hello,

I load a .png file and display it in a JPanel when my program (see below) starts.


When I run it within eclipse the png is displayed correctly. However, when I export my program and run the executable jar file it doesn't. How do I include the .png file in my jar file?

I had posted the question in Eclipse forum but got no answer, so please help me.

-Ravi

Silly question, but mySplash.png is inside your jar file, correct?

My guess would be that your programm is just loading the png from where it is, but the png-file itself is not included in your project/jar.
In Eclipse you can just drag and drop the file into your projectfolder and eclipse will ask you, if you want to copy and safe it inside your project.
