Hello, I am trying to comple my java code to a jar file. However when it compiles it does not show my image. The program works fine within Eclipse, so I have no clue what is going on!


import javax.swing.*;

public class QuestComponent {

public static void main( String[] args ) {
String theMap = "Development Snapshot 1.0.0.jar/res/Spawn.png";

JFrame frame = new JFrame("Quest: Development V 1. 0. 0");
JLabel image = new JLabel( new ImageIcon(theMap));
frame.getContentPane().add( new JScrollPane(image));
// frame.getContentPane().add( new Version("Development 1. 0. 0"));
frame.setSize( 640, 480);
frame.setVisible( true );

When you create your jar file you can specify what main method you want to run. Have you done that?
