I am trying to make it so that i can load a image file that should be in the folder of class.
ive tried getClass().getResource("2.jpg");
But it will work on windows but not on a server based Mac.
So i would like to know how to make it so it works for both, or at least what i am doing wrong.

Thanks.

Say your class XX and image file ZZ is residing in package yy;

InputStream in = XX.getClass().getResourceAsStream("ZZ");


This would help you in reading the stream of your image file.

Hi DrunkenTigerDDD,

I think it should also work for Mac environment if you copied the 2.jpg file in the same folder path.
If you made an executable jar file, the image should be in the jar file too, otherwise the file can't be found.

>> InputStream in = XX.getClass().getResourceAsStream("ZZ");

You probably mean :
  InputStream in = XX.class.getResourceAsStream("ZZ");
Because getClass() is not static.
