Using Forte for development. In my gui I use getImage("com/teoco/EitParser/eplogo.gif") to load the image in my title bar rather than the Java logo. This works.
Now I create a jar of all of the class files and this logo. Then I create a cmd file that launches the gui, but the image doesn't appear in the title bar anymore. After creating the bar, the gui can't seem to find the gif. Any ideas as to why???
Thanks in advance.

I also have a same problem but the image is not on the on the title bar but used as splash screen. But if i provide the image in the correcct path outside the jar file it works perfectly.
What can i say is that it is due to the slow loading of images?
Anyone else with a better answer will be welcomed....

Keep the jar file in the classpath and try this code

frame.setIcon(new ImageIcon(getClass().getResource("/dir1/dir2/gif.gif"))
hope this works
