You would generally place it in a folder in the source tree.

You need to create another folder off the source root

don't put it in a source folder, thats not appropriate.
Just place it in a regular folder

so the difference is you have it in your source folder? I tried putting it in the source folder but i get the same error.

That's not the only difference. The other difference (i'm guessing since the source isn't shown) is the way you load the resource

putting in the source folder is wrong. source folder is for *source*

you're problem is just that you are specifying the wrong path to the file

If you want to add the file to the build path so you can use the classloader and getResource() to access it then you can add the folder you created to your build path

Configure Build Path>Libraries>Add Class folder

You don't add a folder to the binaries folder. As you can see in my example, it works fine

it may work, but its *wrong* and unnecessary. Source folder is called that for a reason :)
