J2ME questions are normally better suited to the "Consoles, PDAs and Cell Phones" forum.

Anyway, in your compiled jar there will not actually be a /res folder (assuming a normal setup, like building through the WTK or NetBeans or something). So the file is at the top directory of the jar, and you just open an InputStream for it:

InputStream is = this.getClass().getResourceAsStream("/mypak.pak");
// You can use any Class object for the getResourceAsStream object;
// in case you have to call this from a static method, you could do
// e.g. new Object().getClass(), or currentClass.class .
// If you're using packages, and there is no leading slash in the filename,
// the path will be relative to whereever the specified class is in the JAR.

From there, use the InputStream's methods - read the docs.
