hi,
i am having a jar file called system.jar, which includes classes.jar and images.jar. the main class is in the classes.jar. when my web start is launched, it should read the main class and retrieve the image file from the images.jar. i am new to java web start. i would like to know how to solve this? any code for this. i tried the below code but it is not working. all the images are in the images.jar file
ClassLoader c1=this.getClass().getClassLoader();
URL url=c1.getResource("splashImage.jpg");
this keyword refers to the main class. any help is appreciated.
regards
Kiran

Hi,
I think your best bet is to remove the jar files from your system.jar and let webstart download all 3 jar files.
that way all 3 jar files will be in your classpath and you can access the image as you propose.
sincerely
