Subject Re: Issues with Jar deployment

If the value of the src attribute begins with a slash, it is interpreted as an absolute path
relative to the classpath. Otherwise, it is interpreted as relative to the including file.

What does the directory structure in your JAR look like? Based on your example, I would expect
something like this:



Is that correct?

build a JAR? Maybe you need to tell Eclipse to include *.wtkx files in the resulting JAR?

 That seemed, at least at the time, to be the simplest organizational pattern..but I guess
it is flawed?
