1. I used Apache common io.
> lines = FileUtils.readLines("c://etc...//mypackage//io//textfile.txt"); // absolute path
This is absolute path. It works.
List<String> lines = FileUtils.readLines("mypackage/io/textfile.txt"); // relative to a package
Exception in thread "main"
Syntax-wise or class-wise or xyz: How can I make it by using relative path to a package?

First you get a File object which represents the "package" -- whatever you mean by that.
File packageFile = ...
Then you use the File constructor which allows you to create a File relative to another File:
File dataFile = new File(packageFile, "mypackage/io/textfile.txt");
I agree. Here's the link:
