I 've developed an eclipse plugin and in that I have a java file trying to read directories and then populate result accordingly. When I try to run the file from eclipse itself through Run>Java application , it gives me proper result but as soon as I try to run the same through Eclipse Application, it is throwing NullPointerException because unable to find the directory.

I tried the following ways- Suppose , I have a package as -

Package -

Directories - Now in InputStream is = LGHelpContentView.class.getResourceAsStream("/"+dirName);**

The above line is getting failed. How should I keep my directory and where so that it will run as an eclipse plug-in as well.
