relative/absolute paths in Java
i have a program that reads in images; however, I'm having trouble displaying hte images using relative paths. My computer at home with java 1.5.0, the "/file\\image.gif" the path works fine, but when i'm compiling and runing on another machine i can't see the pictures, using relative path, it only works for absolute. the java at other computers are all 1.4.2_05. Is there something i'm doing wrong? or is this a bug in java?
