How can the resources be listed in a particular folder?
getClass().getResources("resources/images") returns only the url of the images folder, not the urls of the files inside. * is not accepted as wildcard.

Try


File[] resources = new File(getClass().getResource("resources/images").toURI()).listFiles();

getClassLoader() is missing - it's my fault

The correct code is:
File[] resources = new File(getClass().getClassLoader().getResource("resources/images").toURI()).listFiles();

Can the resources be fetched if they are packed in a .jar file?

That's not necessary - see
