I have a large number of jpg images I want to access through the Class.getResource methods. I don't want Eclipse to copy them or move them around, nor do I want to package them up in a JAR.

How can I set up the runtime class path to find these files when I run from within Eclipse? Is there a problem with the default class loader loading image files from directories other than "images" or relative to the applications CWD?

Thanks!
