Program detects REsources when runned through JBuilder but not after it is deployed to a jar file

I developed a program that uses Images located  in mypackage.images. The JBuilder identified the PNG images in the project contents. When I run the program through JBuilder it works fine. After deployemt though when I try to run the Native Executable it does find the images
Why? This classpath thing confuses me so much

how do you load your images?
Also - what do you mean by 'deplyment'? Do you mean deployment on an application server?
Please, be more concrete.

ImageIcon imgMain = new ImageIcon( this.getClass( ).getResource(
        "images/logo.PNG" ) );

This CLASS is found in the "javollo" package
***The image is in the "javollo/images/logo.PNG"(loaded through the MainPane.class)

When I run the program through JBuilder it runs OK. When (deploy) the classes into a JAR file and create a Native Executable it even adds the images in the JAR file but it does not display them.
When I run the console EXE file I get
java.lang.NullPointerException
        at javax.swing.ImageIcon.<init>(Unknown Source)
        at javollotest.MainPane.jbInit(MainPane.java:43) //at this line I have ***above
        at javollotest.MainPane.<init>(MainPane.java:28)
        at javollotest.MainFrame.<init>(MainFrame.java:28)
        at javollotest.JavOLLO.<init>(JavOLLO.java:11)
        at javollotest.JavOLLO.main(JavOLLO.java:42)

How are you setting the classpath? Are you using a jar?

Make sure javollo is set as a classpath in the manifest. Use

new ImageIcon( this.getClass( ).getResource(
       "/images/logo.PNG" ) );

It might help too if you tell us what your package declaration is in your code

Or

imgMain = new ImageIcon( this.getClass( ).getResource( "/javollo/images/logo.PNG" ) );

should work...

>>package javollotest;

If that's your declaration, you need to include the directory that contains that in Class-Path, not javaollotest itself
