You shouldn't have any problems unless you're using deprecated MS stuff.

BTW...go over to and grab their IDE, it is beautiful!

Are you trying to compile Java code with gcj? Because it compiles fine, but I've been trying to compile an imported class (javax.swing....) which has JOptionPane ( a graphical dialog box ) and it returns an error... no problems under Sun's j2sdk with javac compiler though...

difficulties using images
hey there, i have been having difficulty getting my java programs to use images such as gif or jpg.
Im using slackware9.1 j2sdk 1.4.2, & netbeans 3.5
ive been trying to get images to display in my GUI but no luck.whats even more strange is that it worked on windows. here is the example code.

Icon jim= new ImageIcon("PHOTO.JPEG");
JLabel jimLabel=new JLabel();



the same sort of thing happened to me when i was using mandrake too.
another thing thats strange is the image will load up in the title bar using...

whats happening here & how can i get around it?:scratch:

Hold back,start again, what is the code you are trying to use exactly? (unusual to use jpeg extention rather than jpg but beyond that)

Are you trying to run the application directly from the IDE? I mean, I use (or ratter saying, used, not anymore) DrJava ( it's the best IDE that I've ever used for Java. BUT, for some weird reason, all images would not run when executing the application directly from the IDE. But, If I've compiled (javac and tried to run my application (java myProgram) at the console, it worked perfectly. I don't know the reason for this, but that could also be your case...

Yep thats it,your right.
When you run the app from the IDE it doesn't load the images but doing it from the console does.:)
Thanks for that MegaMan X.
I wonder why it does that?:scratch:
Ill have to ask sun that. :study:

Cool dublinclontarf!!!

I've got tell you mate, I feel sorry that it does not work for you either. But it's kinda of a relief for me to know that there're no ghosts wandering my computer (unless there're some ghosts at your machine too):D lol.

I've tried to find an explanation for it on the net, but I was unsuccessful. If you ever find it, please let me know :D.

Thanks for the reply as well ;)
