Hey all,

i´m not sure if this is the right thread, but i couldn´t find a better one.Ok here is my problem:

Assuming i have the following test fragment structure:
   |  |-my.package
   |        |-MyTest
   |  |-test.png

How can i access the "test.png" file in my junit test?
Note that i want to do a PURE junit test, no plugin test, so get the location from the bundle via an Activator is not possible. Also FileLocator can´t be used because i don´t want to have a dependency on eclipse.runtime.

Right now i´m using getClass().getResource() but this works only if my "test.png" file is located in a java package.

Thanks alot and greetz

One way to do this by making the "testData" directory a source folder and let it's contents get copied to the same output folder as the classes. Then load it by using getClass().getResource("/test.png") where it is important to not forget the /

(Note that Maven uses the same approach: resources are put into src/main/resources which is added as a source folder to the project.)
