I'm creating a JAR file and trying to reference a resource inside (while building the JAR with Eclipse), with the following structure:
->main source folder
->->classes (Main class is here)
->JRE System Library
I'm trying to reference my resource (which is a text file) in a FileReader in my main class.
I tried to use relative file names, and tried all of these:
new FileReader( "myFile.txt" );
new FileReader( "../myFile.txt" );
new FileReader( "../../myFile.txt" );
In all these cases, I get a FileNotFoundException.
Am I missing something stupid here? I have a feeling the answer is yes. Could one of you with a better set of eyes please let me know where I'm going wrong in my referencing?
