This question has been asked many times on this site and at some other java resource sites.
Taking help from the replies posted, I have used the getResource() method of the ClassLoader class.
The HTML file is "abc.html"
The url obtained is "loaderresource://Z/CRWSbHlp.html" which the browser cannot display!! The standard error "The page canot be displayed" screen was displayed.
My code is as follows :

Another method I tried out was with the following code:

Both the outputs of the url in the java console as well as in the url window is :

I have tested the code both from a local pc as well as a webserver.
in the case of the web server, the url in the url window is blank, though the url obtained in the java console is the same as above.
I would appreciate if anyone could point out any mistake in my code or offer an alternative.
p.s.: sorry for posting this topic in more than one forum, but I needed a solution by all means!!
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
