eclipse export jar question

hey everybody,

I just used the export jar feature in eclipse to create a jar file. The jar file should have contained all of the classes and some .wav and .GIF files. When I run the jar file, the class operations operate as intended but without the images and sounds. Any ideas on this?

The first question is did you try looking in the jar to see if the .wav files are there. (You can view a jar file in any winzip type program.)

If you are there, there's probably a difference between how the code is opening the sound file that only operates on the file system. Please post this is line of code so we can comment.

@ Jeanne,

thanks for replying.

So, for your first question, yes, the all of the files are in the jar file.

below is the code for the wav files.

It would help if we knew what the value of "current" is when MusicPick is called. I suspect, though, that you should be using Class.getClassLoader().getResource() to access a wav file instead of that way you are doing it.
