    Default Usig Images from the web in Java

    Hi guys I'm having problems getting this little program to function properly.

    import java.net.URL;
    import javax.swing.ImageIcon;
    import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
    public class Test
    {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception
    {
    URL imageLocation = new URL("https://duke.dev.java.net/images/iconSized/duke.gif");
    JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Hello", "Title",
    JOptionPane.PLAIN_MESSAGE, new ImageIcon(imageLocation));
    System.exit(0);
    }
    }

    Expected result:
    a dialog box with "hello" in it, and an image somewhere in the mix.

    Current Result:
    a dialog box with hello in it... No image!

    Can someone tell me why is the URL object not working properly?

    thank you very much.
    -Zeek

    Do you get any error messages?

    System.exit(0);

    By the way, that line of code is pointless as the program is about to exit anyway.

    Well no I don't get any error message. It runs perfectly but the output is not as expected. It is as if I just created a window with them message hello in it, and ignored the image. Its kinda weird and annoying. But thanks for the tip on that line of code!

    Are you sure that the url is correct? Have you typed it into a browser?
