Maven build runs local but fails in pipeline with resource not found

I have a JUnit test class that is triggered by the maven build.

It loads a file `src/test/resources/ConfigTest.json`

When running locally from the command line it works as expected, but when running in the bitbucket-pipeline this test fails:



import org.junit.Assert;

import org.junit.Test;


public class ClassLoaderTest {


    public final void test() {

        ClassLoader c = this.getClass().getClassLoader();

        // THIS line fails with a null pointer

        File configFile = new File(c.getResource("ConfigTest.json").getFile());





What do I miss?

Mystery solved. The culprint was this line in my `.bash_profile` on my Mac:

           # Case-insensitive globbing (used in pathname expansion)
           shopt -s nocaseglob;

It allows the `getResourceAsStream(name)` (and any other file operation) find files case insensitive. I presumed that Java on Mac would always be case sensitive.

There was one capitalisation error in my resource name, so the pipeline rightfully failed.
