    Default Picture won't go with the .jar (Wrong code or compile error?)

    Hi ,

    I want to have a picture on the JFrame and for that I use the 2 lines of code below this patagraph. The problem is that when I compile it to .jar, I can only see the picture on the computer with the picture and if the picture stays on the same path like when I compiled it. How do I do to make the picture follow in the .jar file?

    a = new JLabel();
    a.setIcon(new javax.swing.ImageIcon("C:\\Documents and Settings\\Jonathan\\Mina dokument\\NetBeansProjects\\NameGen\\build\\classes\\p12.jpg"));

    When I compile it I do like this (I compile in NetBeans):

    I right click on the project
    Go to properties
    Set the class (the class in the code below) as main class
    Go to run
    Press Build Main Project

    If you no nothing about netbeans, tell me how you compile it and I can test that and see if it is the compilation that is the error.


    This is the whole code (if that may help)

    Excuse the Swenglish in the code ^^

    I do like in this example below marked in red and the cmd says it compresses to a jar. The .jar ends up in the same folder as the mainclass and when I press the .jar file I just hear that "windows error-sound" and the .jar does not open.

    jar cvf TicTacToe.jar TicTacToe.class audio images
