Subject Re: Referring to a image file in a JAR file
Date Wed, 21 Jul 2010 15:16:03 GMT

we needed exactly that and implemented our own "ResourceResolver" for that.
You can register it like the following:

//Register a custom resolver
foUserAgent.setURIResolver(new ClasspathResourceResolver());

//The clas has to implement the URIResolver
public class ClasspathResourceResolver implements URIResolver {

//you overwrite the resolve method
public InputStream resolve(String uri){

//Resolves the path to a resource in the classpath (since that jar
should be in the classpath
