can I create a RandomAccessFile and use the path that the current app (.class file) is running in?

for example :

RAF = new RandomAccessFile("Menu.txt", "r");


where Menu.txt is in the same folder as the class files that the app is currently running from.

Thanks

you can do that but the current disrectory is not necessarily the same folder as the class.
The current directory will be the one the application was started from

i don't see the difference... how would you start the application from a directory if there is no class files?

via the classpath, class files are found via the class loader

Use following code to get hold of the location of the current class file
assuming MYClass is the class name


this.class.getResource("MYClass.class").toString()
