I am using forte for java (ide)to develop an application. I want it to be platform independent (or atleast run on unix and windows platforms). The application displays jframes which contain labels which display images. i.e i provide the path of the images to be loaded in labels and these images r located in some folder. Also the program reads some files to process the user data which(the files) exist in the current directory where forte is installed. I want everything to be in single folder (all the files and images and .class files if i put it in one folder and run it doesnt work). Also if i try to run the application outside of the forte environment i get errors.Please post a solution asap.
