We wrote an eclipse plugin in which need to get list of files from a jar file

to get the list of the files present we are using the following way

URL propertiesURL = MyClass.class.getClassLoader().getResource(

But the propertiesURL doesnt return the correct path. Is there any other alternative available for this? Any input will be very much helpful to us.

in a bundle/plug-in context you have to use Activator.getDefault().getBundle().getEntry("resourcename") to get the right url. But be careful because the url is different concerning if the bundle is jarred or not.

By the way: Resources from within a jar are copied temporary to the active workspace. That is the target location which will be returned by the method mentioned above.
