Hello.

I've been trying to load an image to a static final variable and use it from another class, but I couldn't find a way to do it.
I'm quite new to loading images in Java and displaying them..
I have used this method to load an image, but it can't be used in static context..

Image im = new ImageIcon(getClass().getResource("resourcename.bmp")).getImage();

any help would be greatly appreciated..

That's because getClass() isn't a static method. You should write "something.getClass().getResource(...)"

Thread.currentThread().getClass().getResource(...) is often used.

Thread.currentThread().getClass().getResource(...) is often used.

That probably won't get you the classloader you want if your code is spread across different JARs. A much better way to handle statics is to do:

1  
ClassName.class.getResource(...);


Where "ClassName" is the name of the current class.

Yet another alternative:

1  
Thread.currentThread().getContextClassLoader().getResource()
