Programming - Resources in Beans

java.lang.Class.getResourceAsStream

public InputStream getResourceAsStream(String name)

Finds a resource with a given name. This method returns null if no resource with this name is found. The rules
for searching resources associated with a given class are implemented by the defining class loader of the
class.

This method delegates the call to its class loader, after making these changes to the resource name: if the
resource name starts with "/", it is unchanged; otherwise, the package name is prepended to the resource
name after converting "." to "/". If this object was loaded by the bootstrap loader, the call is delegated to
ClassLoader.getSystemResourceAsStream.


Parameters: name - name of the desired resource
Returns:a java.io.InputStream object.
Since: JDK1.1
