Rather using the full path, try it with reference path. I mean something like,

If you get errors, copy and paste the FULL TEXT without edits.

here is the error message
sorry! please don't mind. I am habituated to that kind. thats why i have typed like that.
Thank you very much for your quick reply to my query.
i think this is because of path error.
I have used the following for getting the file name.
this.getClass().getResource("/mysetupwizard/resources/License.txt").toString().replace("%20", " ").substring(6);
I am not sure about this is the correct way to use files in the project or not? Please let me know the correct method to get file.
The error message is as follows. please go through it and tell me a solution.

please tell me the correct way to get the path of files in the project.
- 10-13-2008, 04:11 PM #13...MySetupWizard.jar!\mysetupwizard\resources\Lice nse.txt
When you added this file to the jar file, did you preserve its path?
Look at the contents of the jar file to see if you have the correct path.
You can use WinZip to display it. Or rename it to .zip and open it.

ya... License.txt is there in the jar file in /mysetupwizard/resources/
can u please tell why it is not coming?

I got the solution!
i got the solution. as i told, its path problem. To access a resource(like txt file), I have used the following code...
InputStream is = this.getClass().getResourceAsStream("myTextFile.tx t");
while((chr = is.read()) != -1)
jTextPane1.setText(str);Thanks and Regards,

as said, i got the solution and it is working fine in windows.
but when im trying to execute my jar file in linux, it is giving an error as
Null Peer?! Exception
and the form is empty.
i copied the jar file and lib folder to linux and executed.
pls gimme a solution for this!Thanks and Regards,

Is your program reading the file from the jar file or from the disk? To be sure which, have the contents of the file be different for the two locations.
License.txt is there in the jar file in /mysetupwizard/resources/
There would NOT be a leading / in that display.
Yes it is definitely a path problem. The path used by getResource is not where the file is located in the jar file.

first of all, Thankyou very much for ur interest in solving my problem.
i havent used any path. i directly gave the file name.
at first, i gave the path relative to root. but now i gave it relative to the class.
this solved my problem.
But now, i got a new problem. I cudnt execute this jar in Linux.
It is giving Null Peer?! Exception and displaying an empty form.
pls tell me a solution for this!Thanks and Regards,
