    Default Java application works fine in IDE but not in windows

    Hi

    I hope you can help me:

    I have a Java project that works fine in IDE but not in windows, the application shows a screen using javax.swing.JDesktopPane() when clicking in a tree node, I have several nodes and all of them work fine except the last one I add recently, when in IDE it is ok, when I double click the .jar everything works fine except the last that does not shows and no errors messages are displayed, the program stops in the next code:

    JLabel itmx = new JLabel();
    itmx.setIcon(new javax.swing.ImageIcon(getClass().getResource("/imgs/Tx.jpg")));
    ventana.getContentPane().add(itmx);
    itmx.setBounds(400, 10, 160, 50);

    Tx.jpg (3,402 bytes) could be open with “Paint”, and is in C:\...\build\classes\imgs and in C:\...\src\imgs
    NetBeans 6.8.
    Windows XP SP3.
    Cleaned and building several times after each edition.

    Manifest.mf:
    Manifest-Version: 1.0
    X-COMMENT: Main-Class will be added automatically by build

    Thank you in advance

    Sincerely
    Adolfo Ponce

    Tahnk you for your time Norm:

    I put some "flags" like
    JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(ventana,"step 1","classname",JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE) ;
    all over the code, besides when I comment this code the .jar works fine (no image Tx.jpg showed, of course) but in NetBeans works well always.

    Any Idea?



    , no displays of Tx.jpg of course

    How can I have any idea? I have seen no code that demonstrates the problem.

    I'm not lying Norm, I’m sorry I bothered you, I am just looking for some help from someone who has experienced a similar problem or someone with enough experience to give sensible directions to solve the problem, I am a novice in java, I do not know how can I demonstrate the problem, it simple appears that the thread stops or cycles when the image file is loaded, the program does not hang up, I have even tried other image files that I used in others screens, when I click the node all the “flags” appear until it reaches this code and then… nothing, and this only when executing the .jar.

    There are many ways for programs to not do what you want them to do. I have no idea what your program is doing and can not suggest anything except to try debugging the code by adding printlns to show what the code is doing.
