I'm running into some problems importing images in Eclipse. I'm trying to load some images and then store them in a Vector. Here is my code:
The program compiles, but when I run it, I get a NullPointerException when I try to access the BufferedImage stored in the vector. I have all the images stored in the src folder for the project in Eclipse. I tried running the program using on my school's UNIX server and there were no issues. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can post the rest of my code if that would help.

Don't use File to load the images, use Class.getResource(AsStream).

I tried using the Class.getReasourceAsStream() method and I still get the NullPointerException. Here is my updated code:

Whoops. I accidentally marked the topic as resolved. THE TOPIC IS NOT RESOLVED. I can't figure out how to undo.

First you said the image was in a file in the current working directory. But that wasn't right because Eclipse's current working directory is unrelated to any of your projects. So now you've changed it to say the image is in the same folder as the class that code is in. Apparently that isn't the case either. Have you read the API documentation for the getResourceAsStream method to see if it says anything about that?
