To read an image file from the JAR to an Image object, you should use this code:

try {
Image logo = Image.createImage("/path_to_the_image");
catch (java.io.IOException e) {
System.err.println("Image read error");


  • You must use the first slash "/" to refer to the root of the JAR file.
  • You must include the image in the project to be included in the JAR file by the IDE you are using.
  • To be 100% standard to all devices, the image should be in PNG format. Many Nokia devices supports GIF, JPG and BMP to.
