Hi,
I'm converting an application to an applet. Basically the application is just JFrame which I try to open from JApplet. The problem is, that in one of the classes:
com.mydomain.project.console.ConfigurationComponent
I have a line:
private static final ImageIcon mailIcon = new ImageIcon(ConfigurationComponent.class.getResource("resources/mail_active.gif"));
This should take the image from folder:
com/mydomain/project/resources
The image is there, when working as an application everyting is fine, but as an applet it throws a NullPointerException, probably because no image is found. How should I do this?

Hi Maciej,
You could place the image file in the same directory on the server that your applet is in. Then to access it you just use:
getImage( getDocumentBase(), "image.gif" );
from the Applet class.
Regards,
Manfred.
