    Post NetBeans vs .JAR

    Hi there
    I'm not going to post any source code, but I have a little question. See if you can answer it.
    The program is programed to have a little encryption in it to store passwords. When I run my program in NetBeans, it works perfectly and the encryption works the way it should, but as soon as I run bould the program with NetBeans and run my .jar file, then the encryption works different.
    Can anyone explain why it is doing that and how to solve my problem.
    Thanks <\>

    Is this post a game, kind of like "I'm thinking of a color and I want you to guess it" sort of thing?

    Why make your question harder to answer than it needs to be? Why not post enough information so that folks have a decent chance of being able to help?

    One potential difference is that files don't really exist in jars, and so if you're trying to get information from a resource held by a Jar and you're trying to do so as if the information were held in a file, you could be messing things up, but again, this is nothing more than a SWAG, and if you want better help, you'll need to ask a better question. What sort of debugging have you done so far? Have you used logging or println statements to find out the state of your program during its run in order to isolate the problem?

    How is the encryption different? ...specifically?
    Is it still functional or does it no longer work? ie when you decrypt you fail to get your original password...
    Do you get any errors? or crash? other?
    "...and how to solve your problem" I am having a hard time understanding what the problem is. Perhaps you can explain a little better about what the difference is between running via IDE vs JAR.

    One basic difference when running the code those two different ways would be the values of the classpath and the current directory.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
