    Can't find .bss files at runtime


      I used Eclipse to create a Runnable Jar from my FX project.
      When I try to run the Runnable Jar, I see the following exception:
      java.net.MalformedURLException: Could not open InputStream for URL 'rsrc:css/myapp.bss'

      I looked inside the jar and saw a myapp.css in the css directory, but no myapp.bss.
      I read from here (http://docs.oracle.com/javafx/2.0/deployment/packaging.htm) that says conversion from .css to .bss is optional.

      Is there a way to tell my app to just use the .css file and don't look for the .bss file?

      Any help is appreciated.

          The problem is the "rsrc" bit of the url that is causing the MalformedURLException.

          The css code first looks for the binary form of your css file before falling back to the ascii. You can, however, set -Dbinary.css=false to stop the code from looking for the binary file. But I don't recommend this and you'll still get the MalformedURLException.

            Do you mean even if I have the proper .bss files in there, I will still get the exception?
            How can I get rid of the exception?
            My code that loads the css looks like this: scene.getStylesheets().add(getClass().getResource("/css/myapp.css").toExternalForm());

              It would appear that Eclipse (or something else) is doing something strange with the classloader and setting it to use some bizarre protocol.

              Perhaps this StackOverflow answer may help you: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7507156/java-net-malformedurlexception-unknown-protocol-rsrc "java.net.MalformedURLException: unknown protocol: rsrc"

                John is right. Plug "MalformedURLException rsrc" into your favorite search engine.
