Should that have a leading "/" in the path?

If you have an exotic ClassLoader hierarchy, you may be getting the
wrong ClassLoader -- one that isn't expecting to load yourjar.jar or
have one of it's parent ClassLoaders do it.

Nathan's suggestion to try CurrentClass.class.getResourceAsStream after
CurrentClass.class.getClassLoader.getResourceAsStream just makes your
code harder to read and doesn't add anything: Class.getResourceAsStream
already delegates to Class.getClassLoader.getResourceAsStream.
