Hi

I try to create a URL Object to load all my game resources.

The Method for this:

1  
2  
3  
public static URL getFileURL(String aFile) {
  return getURL("file:"+aFile);
}


This Method works just fine. But i thought it would be bette to create the URL Object via class Loader. So i rewrote it:

1  
2  
3  
public static URL getFileURL(String aFile) {
return new Resource().getClass().getClassLoader().getResource(file);
}


This Method doesn't work... Can someone tell me why?

Thanks & good night

Should that be:
1  
return getClass().getClassLoader().getResource(file);

The Method is static so you can not access getClass directly.


I think the Directory for the resource must be in the classpath. I tried that but it doesn't work.

I use the following...

URL url = ThisClassName.class.getResource(                  "/directory/filename");

which seems to work, including over webstart.

Hmm,  is the directory a sub directory from a Package or is the directory in your classpath? On my machine it doesn't work and i can't see why. )-:

The directory is relative to the classpath.

I don't get it. Ok, let's make an example

you have a Project with the following structure:
  src
  images <--- resources

In your game you wright "/images/image.png"

Now we assume you have your Project in D:\projects\
so the classpath would be D:\projects\project\
If the jar is in that directory, with the that classpath, it should work... right?

Btw, sorry for my bad english ... and my stupidity (-:
