java.util.MissingResourceException in Resource bundle

Hello All, I am creating a ResourceBundle to load the property files. My file structure looks like

| ---Main


| --Resource


In normal when i put main class and the property file in same package means it retrieves all the property file values. If i separate both files means it's not working. It throws java.util.MissingResourceException exception.

My code is

 private static final String BUNDLE_NAME = "ExternalizedLogMessages";
 private static final ResourceBundle RESOURCE_BUNDLE = ResourceBundle.getBundle(BUNDLE_NAME);

Please suggest me how to solve this problem


I achieve this by using the class loader. the source is

 private static URLClassLoader resourceLoader= null;

 * Initialize class loader.
    ClassLoader currentThreadClassLoader
     = Thread.currentThread().getContextClassLoader();

    //assuming that current path is the project directory
    try {
         = new URLClassLoader(new URL[]{new File(".").toURI().toURL()},
    } catch (MalformedURLException e) {

 * Properties bundle name.
private static final String BUNDLE_NAME = "resource.ExternalizedLogMessages"; //$NON-NLS-1$

 * Resource bundle object.
private static final ResourceBundle RESOURCE_BUNDLE = ResourceBundle
