My initial goal for my fabricator library that i'm working on is that it can be used in both Java and Scala projects. The problem i faced recently was that , when i packaged scala code into jar file and tried to use it in another java project, i got "file not found" exception in a step when my library was trying to read data from resources file. My project structure was simple :
At first, i was trying to read my resource file by giving relative path , but unfortunately this doesn't work when it comes to packaging your code.
Eventually, i found a nice and working way to load resources in scala :
That give's an InputStream which you can process then however you want.
