Update: Instead of fixing the Uberjar plugin, using the faster JavaApp plugin may be a feasible alternative.
I had some troubles getting the Maven 1 Uberjar plugin to work with a Swing application:
URL url = Main.class.getClassLoader().getResource("icons/22/exit.png");
ImageIcon icon = new ImageIcon(url);
The application would hang on startup when the first ImageIcon was loaded from a URL and throw a NullPointerExceptio
Uncaught error fetching image:
Apparently the URLImageSource class expects url.getHost() != null which is not the case and leads to the exception.
In order to fix the problem, get the classworlds 1.0 source release, apply this patch and run maven jar:install.
Next you need to update the maven uberjar plugin. Checkout the plugin from the maven cvs, apply this patch
