I've got a nice little app done with a wav file to make a noise.

Now I'd like to clean & build the whole thing into MyApp.jar with NetBeans.

Problem is.....where do I put my abc.wav file? Must I modify an xml for this?

First create a new Java package like com.dave.elwood.resource.sounds within your main project. Then just copy/paste 'abc.wav' file into that new package.

You also need to remember, while access packaged resources in a jar, you should be accessing the using getClass().getResource()

Correction - it compiles and builds but when running this comes out :


the line MyWidgets.MyPanel.makeCrashSound(MyPanel.java:1337) is the line after :


the getResourceAsString(....) returns a null so the next line (line 1337) it hit with NullPointerException

Is the file really called resources.bang.wav ? Or is the file situated under resources/bang.wav?

So use Resources/Bang.wav, not Resources.Bang.wav.

What I meant to hint to you was check your code. Are you trying to load the same file in the code?
Do you think Resources.bang.wav and resources/bang.wav are the same?

which one of you told me this? :

First create a new Java package like com.dave.elwood.resource.sounds within your main project. Then just copy/paste 'abc.wav' file into that new package.



it works :
InputStream in = this.getClass().getResourceAsStream("../Resources/Bang.wav");

Thanks guys.
