Hi all,

I am trying to create a new tecture from a remove file on the net with the following code snippet,

              try {
                 System.out.println("Getting the URL\n");
                 URL url = new URL("");        
                 System.out.println("Getting the Texture\n");                
                  texture = TextureIO.newTexture(url, false, "png");
              catch (IOException exc) {

but its basically stuck for ever at the newTexture line...

Same code with local file works like a charm...
And the URL is fine and I am getting the image instataniously in my web browser, so...
What did I miss?

Which version of JOGL do you use? It is strange as I used com.jogamp.opengl.util.texture.TextureIO several times in such a case and it was working.

Please can you try to load the image without JOGL just to check if the problem really comes from it? Use Class.getResourceAsStream(), check its return value isn't null.

when I do:
InputStream stream = jfrog.Common.class.getResourceAsStream("");
I get a stram that is equal to null... but I can't understand why, since the url is ok in my browser...
Can it be because of the tilde ("~") ?

I also tried this:
InputStream stream = new URL("").openStream();
but it get stuck for ever again...

any advice?

I made it working:

              try {
                 URL url = new URL("");
                 if(url!=null)texture = TextureIO.newTexture(url, false, "png");                 
              catch (IOException exc) {
                 System.out.printf("Texture not found");
