    Default data.txt not found

    Hi,

    I hope some can help me out with this.

    I have a program and it runs fine from the Command Prompt using javac then running it. The program holds some data in a .txt file.

    I have put the code into Eclipse, but I do not know how/where to add the txt file to the program. The debugger keeps saying file not found even though it is within the same 'src>default package' folder.

    I keep reading I have to make it into a .jar file before I can include it, but then I read you cannot use them in this form.

    So how can I add the data.txt file into the program/IDE?

    Million thanks for any help, I am quite stuck and under pressure. :o

    Thank you

    Make sure eclipse is set to copy resources from the src folder to the bin (output) folder.

    Thanks OrangeDog!!!!

    How is that done?


    Set eclipse to copy resources to that?

    I right click on the src folder, but see no option for that.

    Please help :)


    EDIT - I have deleted the txt file fom the project and have a new one to add and try again.

    I right click on the 'src' folder in the Package Explorer window. I go New>File and enter a name 'mydata.txt' which is placed in the 'src' folder and I click OK. Copy and paster the files contents into the file, save, and try to run, but it says:



    File not found: mydata.txt
    EXCEPTION: books.txt (The system cannot find the file specified)
    java.io.FileNotFoundException: books.txt (The system cannot find the file specified)

    I think it's on by default, I can't find the settings right now. Can you confirm that it is being copied to the output folder?
